Jeremy Stinson: Congressmen resorting to spamming?

I already don't trust politicians, never have - they're well known for nothing but lying, but spamming? Is Jeremy Stinson really that desperate?

Dear Colleagues & Associates,
Having been involved in public service since 1997, I have long worked for positive change in Maryland. My family and I now feel that the time has come for me to seek elected office. I want to bring common sense ideas and pragmatic solutions to the U.S. Congress by running for House Representative of Maryland’s 5th Congressional district.

As you know, I have always been very concerned about job growth, fiscal responsibility, and education. I believe there are workable solutions available that will enhance Maryland’s 5th district’s, and the nation’s, short term success, mid-range progress and long term growth. Partisan bickering has done nothing to better our situation as a nation.

Another important issue is sustainable energy. We are addicted to foreign oil and outside energy sources. I believe that any energy policy must begin with using resources at home safely and efficiently, reducing dependence on foreign oil and creating jobs here in America, and especially in Maryland.

To succeed in this effort, I need to mount an aggressive campaign. My opponent is the second most powerful Democrat in the House of Representatives. He’s been in office for 31 years, the last 10 of which have been spent in the Democratic leadership. He has ceased to represent the people and instead has become the face of all that is wrong in Washington. It's for these reasons that I have decided to offer the voters of Maryland’s 5th Congressional district a real choice in 2012.

This campaign requires a strong and organized grassroots organization. My team has been tirelessly booking town hall meetings, speaking engagements and just recently, successfully pulled off my official campaign launch. We’re preparing to order our first batch of brochures, flyers, yard signs, T-shirts and banners. We’re relying heavily on neighborhood canvassing and word of mouth advertising. I cannot do this alone. That is why I'm inviting people that know me well to join my campaign and help make a real difference.

An early contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500 or $2500, made payable to Friends of Jeremy Stinson for Congress will help raise the initial funds needed to launch the campaign and get our message out to the public. At the bottom of this email there are two links, one for monetary contributions and one for volunteering time. If you are opposed to electronic contributions, please feel free to send payments to:

Friends of Jeremy Stinson for Congress

I hope that you'll decide to become involved and help make a difference. We must begin ordering campaign materials and securing office space by Saturday, April 15, 2012.

We hope to raise $50,000 by May 1, 2012,and $100,000 by the end of June - we are well on our way. I ask for your support in meeting this goal. I hope that you‘ll help me to bring better government to the people of Maryland’s 5th Congressional district.

Thanks in advance for your encouragement and support, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest regards,

Jeremy R. Stinson
