from the inbox, note from the Josh Shapiro / Leslie Richards campaign:
Last Monday, we stood with Joe Hoeffel as he announced that he would not seek re-election to another term as Montgomery County Commissioner. At the same time, Joe announced that he supports us to lead a unified Democratic ticket in the 2011 county elections.
We are grateful to Joe for his years of service to the public and commitment to our party. Joe has fought tirelessly for progressive values and to build our party. We all owe him a debt of gratitude.
The 2011 elections are critical to our county and our party. We are confident that unified behind the Shapiro-Richards ticket we will win a Democratic majority in the courthouse and bring about real change that will improve the lives of all who live and work in Montgomery County.
That road to victory begins with you. On February 17, we will respectfully ask for the endorsement to lead our Democratic ticket at the county convention. Then on February 18, all the way through to Election Day we will ask for your hard work and commitment to bring about a new day in the courthouse and for our County.
We look forward to hearing from you. Please visit www.ShapiroRichards.com for more information and to get involved.
Josh Shapiro and Leslie Richards
