As organizers of the Midwest Midterm Progressive Bikeathon, we are writing to support your campaign: www.mmpbike.weebly.com
The Bikeathon is an event to promote the election of Midwest progressive candidates in November. It is travelling from Madison, Wisconsin to Pittsburgh, stopping along the way to promote candidates and raise voter awareness.
On the morning of 15 September we will host our “Capital Kickoff” on Capitol Square in Madison, while the Dane County Farmers’ Market is in full swing. We have a permit to use the North Hamilton St. Walkway from 10.00 to noon. It seems like an excellent campaigning venue. We hope you agree.
We are cooperating with the Fighting Bob Fest organizers and Our Wisconsin Revolution leaders (also in Dane County) on the event. Here is our draft program:
10.15 Recorded Bikeathon Playlist warm-up music
10.30 Bruce Murray: Welcome to the Bikeathon!
10.35 Live Music with Dan LoCascio
10.45 OWR Representative: OWR message and introduction of OWR-endorsed candidates
10.50 OWR-endorsed candidate
11.00 OWR-endorsed candidate
11.10 OWR-endorsed candidate
11.20 Live Music with Dan LoCascio
11.25 Norman Stockwell: Invitation to Fighting Bob Fest picnic
11.30 Bruce Murray: Closing comment about Bikeathon picnic attendance and invitation to cycle with us.
We would like to ask you to speak about your campaign at the event in one of the slots between 10.50 and 11.20. We also are inviting Ann Groves Lloyd and Brittany Keyes to speak. We hope very much that you will accept our invitation!
Please let us know if you have questions or suggestions.
If you could respond by 4 September, that would be great!
