HOW YOU CAN HELP

If you’ve made it to this page, and are looking for a way to support my campaign, let me first say THANK YOU. A campaign is won one vote, and one voter at a time, so your interest in this campaign is a crucial step in its success.

Here’s how you can contact me:

Better for Benton
PO Box 1033
Corvallis OR 97339

Outreach

The most important way you can help is simple: Tell your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc. about my campaign, and ask them to also support me. Expensive ads and lawn signs don’t win campaigns; word of mouth does. Simply by networking with the people in your life you help bring this campaign closer to success. Share your thoughts, and share this website address.

Closely related to that is sending in a letter to the editor. They are also a vital part of a successful campaign. They don’t have to be long, or fancy, or works of art. They just have to let people know you support me, and urge them to do the same. If you are unsure of what to say, or have never written a letter to the editor before, please send an email, and we’ll have someone help you through the process. If you’ve got a letter ready to go, you can send it directly to the Gazette-Times right here Gazette-Times right HERE.

Visibility does play a role as well, so if you’d like to have a locally produced campaign t-shirt to wear, or a lawn sign for your yard, please let us know.   You can also download and print a sign for the window of your car or home!

If you’d be interested in hosting a small meet-and-greet with me at your home, that can easily be arranged. Please contact me and we will work out the details.

Endorsements

Organizations and individuals are welcome to endorse Max.  You can do so by emailing your endorsement text to mania4benton@gmail.com, or visiting the endorsement section of the Friends of Max Mania Facebook Page.

Fundraising

If you are in a position to make a financial donation to my campaign, that is also most welcome, and you can do so via the PayPal button below, or by sending a check made out to “Better for Benton” to: PO Box 1033, Corvallis OR 97339. Your funds will be used wisely, and efficiently.

Finally, if you are interested in supporting my campaign financially, might I make a suggestion? I would ask that you take whatever amount you were considering sending to me, and splitting part of it off to send to one of the two non-profits below. This is a model I call, “Split the Difference, Make a Difference.”

The Old Mill Center works with some of the most vulnerable children in our community – children with special needs, immigrant children, low-income families – and they do amazing things there. You can donate to them directly HERE.

The Heartland Humane Society helps to keep our community from being overrun with unwanted cats and dogs, and provides public services on a number of levels. You can donate to them here HERE. Both of these organizations are 501(c)3 non-profits, and your donations are tax-deductible.

I make this unusual request to support these organizations not because they have endorsed me, but rather, because I am endorsing them. They are absolutely worthy of our support. Our current Benton County Commissioners feel they are not. I disagree, and ask you to help these groups however you can. Raising funds for a political campaign can be a chore, but helping raise funds for worthy non-profits serves the community no matter the outcome of the election.

Thank you so much for your time, interest and support. I look forward to serving you as your County Commissioner.
