I hope this LTE finds you well. My name is Mark Logsdon, and I am excited to reach out to you on behalf of Together for Reading, our local political action committee dedicated to making a positive impact on our community.

As engaged residents of Reading, we recognize the importance of actively participating in local government to ensure that our town continues to thrive and reflect the values we hold dear: fiscal responsibility, resilient infrastructure, inclusivity, affordability, and supporting local business. Together for Reading was formed with the belief that collective action can bring about meaningful change, and we invite you to join us in shaping the future of our community.

Our Goals:

  • Increase resident participation in local elections
  • Endorse candidates who share Together for Reading’s values
  • Establish financial transparency during local elections

How You Can Make a Difference:

As we embark on this journey together, we invite you to contribute to our cause. Your generous donation will enable us to:

  • Print flyers for distribution to likely voters
  • Pay for postage on additional voter outreach efforts
  • Contribute funds to town events that align with our values 

Understanding Our Limits:

It’s crucial to note that, as a political action committee operating in Massachusetts, we adhere strictly to the state’s campaign finance laws. These laws dictate what we can and cannot do in terms of fundraising and expenditures. Rest assured that we are committed to full transparency and compliance with all regulations.

What We Can Do:

  • Endorse and support candidates who align with our values
  • Engage in issue advocacy to promote policies that benefit Reading

What We Cannot Do:

  • Coordinate directly with candidates or their campaigns
  • Accept contributions from corporations or labor unions

We invite you to visit our website to learn more about our mission, our values, and the specific ways your contributions will make a difference.

Your support is invaluable to us, and we believe that, together, we can create a brighter future for Reading. If you have any questions or would like to get involved, please do not hesitate to reach out. We encourage you to share this LTE with your friends.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
