Looking Back and Forward
First let me look back and share my take away from our Celebrate the Constitution event in late September. The Constitution will only work if people fulfill their jobs as described in this brilliant document.
For example, people keep asking …how does the President get away with violating the Emoluments Clause – basically making money off being President.
He’s getting away with it because the party in power is turning a blind eye to it. Republicans are not doing their job. One of the reasons I’m running for office is because neither the President nor the Republicans in Congress are upholding the Constitution. In their oath of office, members of Congress swear to support the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I share the view of those who participated in the Celebrate the Constitution event – upholding the Constitution is a responsibility we all need to take seriously.
We’re on CrowdPAC now
We’ve launched a page on the political crowd sourcing service CrowdPac: https://www.crowdsource.com/c/christinebrown4congress. I was happy to see donations coming in before we even announced the page. I would appreciate your help telling your friends about the page – especially your friends who live outside the 4th District and may not be able to volunteer but who are committed to flipping the House from red to blue. We will need every dollar we can get to defeat an incumbent in a red district!

Thank you to all who have offered support of every kind …a donation, endorsement,
Liked our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, hosted house parties, shared emails or if you have even mentioned the campaign to others. It all adds up to help change the 4th district from Republican to Democrat. Or another way to describe our challenge…to change from representation of the super rich and big corporations, to people like you and me.
