Jared Solomon’s campaign for the 202nd Legislative District has continued to gain momentum. On January 15, 2014, nearly 100 Northeast Philadelphia residents attended a community dinner held at Casa Brasil on Buselton Avenue in Lower Northeast Philadelphia.
“The feedback we’ve gotten to these dinners—and this campaign-- is nothing short of amazing,” said Jared Solomon. “Since announcing my candidacy just over a month ago, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. We’re already hitting the streets with dozens of volunteers a week, and hearing directly from the voters. It’s very clear—our volunteers are ready, our donors are ready, and the voters are ready. They want action, and we are going to bring it.”
The event at Casa Brasil is part of a series of “community dinners” the Solomon campaign is hosting throughout the 202nd District. This free dinner gives residents an opportunity to hear from Jared about the issues in an informal setting—without costing taxpayers a single dime.
Fundraising has also proved incredibly successful for the campaign. Though only officially a candidate for less than a month prior to the filing deadline, Friends of Jared Solomon raised over $65,000 from more than 450 donors in 2013.
“The most impressive part of Jared’s fundraising is the diversity of donors,” said George Matysik, Campaign Chair for Friends of Jared Solomon. “Jared’s not just relying on a few special interest groups to fund this movement—he has over 450 people investing in this campaign. Hundreds of Northeast residents are already investing time and money in Jared’s campaign because they are ready to bring a new day to Northeast Philly.”
