Below the fold is an email I received from Jolie Justus, a good friend from college who is running for the 10th District of the Missouri State Senate. Since I know there are some Missourians and Kansans on Booman, I figured I’d pass along the info as she’d make a great addition to the state legislature and could help stem the tide of some of the wingnuts that are getting out of control back in my home state.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The Justus for Senate Campaign Kickoff was a huge success. Nearly 200 people packed the Bulldog Bar & Grill on March 23 to support a new voice for Kansas City. I can win this race, but only with your help and financial support.
This Friday, March 31, I face my first campaign fundraising disclosure deadline. When I release my finance reports to the public and the media, I need to show a strong bank account. It is crucial that your contribution of $250, $100, $50 or whatever you can afford is received as soon as possible so it will be counted in that total.
