Charlie Thiel Seeking $ For Mayoral Bid
I wanted you to be among the first to know that I will be a candidate for Mayor of Allentown. This is a decision that has been a long time in the making, and I have not made it lightly. I have had many wonderful opportunities to serve this city since first moving here in 1991. This is a great city in so many ways, but it is also a city with unrealized potential.
While we have made great strides in the past few years, our city’s progress has been bogged down in controversy, corruption, conflict, and too much drama!
It is time for competence and stability in City Hall.
It is time for a new direction and a new vision for Allentown, and that is what I will bring to the office of Mayor.
I am proud to have the support of former State Rep. Jennifer Mann, who is my Campaign Chair. I am honored by her confidence that I will do the best job for all our citizens as Allentown’s next Mayor.
But I need YOUR support to win the Democratic primary on May 16, 2017. That is the first step in my effort to become the next Mayor of Allentown, and I need your help to get there.
We started this campaign on December 1st and need to raise a significant amount of money by December 31st. The year-end campaign report is a public report that will tell the community whether or not I am a credible candidate.
The contributions we receive this month will be used for polling, online media infrastructure and content, mailers, and community outreach.
I will be publicly announcing my candidacy in mid-January. That announcement will be accompanied by a media campaign, also requiring significant funding.
Can I count on you? Your support is critical to my success.
Please act now, as December 31st is coming upon us quickly.
Make your donation online here, or you can mail your check to: Friends of Charlie Thiel, P.O. Box 214, Allentown, PA 18015.
Thank you for your support!
