You may have read Thom Singer’s blog post titled “Hey Congress, You Don’t Know Jack!” where he was probably the first to announce that Jack McDonald was forming an exploratory committee to evaluate a run for U.S. Congress in the Texas 10th district, right here in our backyard.
Congress is full of attorneys, and Jack actually started his career as an attorney, but he’s been growing businesses and employing people for probably longer than he practiced law. More importantly he’s been growing his business and raising his family right here in Travis County for over 10 years. Call me crazy, but I think we need more entrepreneurs in DC.
The Obama campaign proved that you can be successful raising funds from the average person like you and me, in smaller and reasonable denominations. Multiplied by thousands of voices, those funds become powerful enough to initiate change.
I urge you to go to www.jackforcongress.com to see what he is all about, and to consider making a donation. Remember that no contribution is too small, and if you happen to see Jack around town at any of the Austin organizations that he is involved with, I’m sure he would extend to you his heartfelt thanks.
