    Well, it’s just the hard cold reality. And it has to be done, so I’ll do it. I’ll be the one to ask…

    Jim McMahan isn’t going to win without more money, y’all. Yard signs cost money. Mailings cost money. And his opponent has lots of it to burn (apparently). Please. Go right now to votejimmymac.com and donate. Will take you ten seconds! And if you use Paypal, it doesn’t even involve a trip to your wallet for your credit card!

    You don’t have to be in Jim’s district to donate. If you support transparency and level-headedness for the DCSD BOE, send Jim some money. He will use it wisely and then represent us with dignity and grace once he wins. But, he needs your help to win.

    Also, it’s time to start talking to your neighbors who don’t have kids, but who vote, about how Jim is the better choice. It’s a non-partisan position, but Womack really has the Republican Old Guard block in his corner — and for no more reason than they are Republican and he flaunts his party. That seems the most logical reason why he garnered so many votes, while the “anti-incumbent” vote did in McChesney and almost Speaks. Certainly anyone who really knows what’s happening in DCSD voted for McMahan (I don’t personally know anyone who voted for Womack), but clearly huge numbers of people think it’s a Republican thing. It’s about the kids, not Democrats or Republicans.

    BUT, right now, go to votejimmymac.com and help Jim out. Every little bit helps.

    It’s a cold hard reality folks… It takes money to run an effective campaign. No one likes to ask, so I’ll just go ahead to do it…

    Please donate to Jim McMahan’s campaign NOW. Yard signs and mailings cost money — money that Womack apparently has to burn. Every little bit helps. Go to votejimmymac.com. It’s SO easy. Even easier if you have a Paypal account. How much is better School Board representation worth to you? Jim has put himself out there to help us, now let’s help him!

    Also, it’s time to start talking to your neighbors who vote, but who don’t have kids in the system anymore. This is a non-partisan position. Womack clearly won by playing to and flaunting his Republicanism. That’s got to be a reason the “anti-incumbent” movement didn’t seem to touch him.

    Please, go right now to votejimmymac.com and make your donation. You and the children of DeKalb deserve it!

  3. Thank you DeKalb School watch II for posting this absentee challenge for me. I believe that this route can only help us succeed in winning- and being able to help make the necessary change needed with our Board.

    No duh is correct…reality is, we need funding to run a campaign. The need is not just restrictive to District 4.

    The same holds true for District 6- it takes funds to run against a machine such as Dr. Melvin Johnson. For those of you who wish to help, or are in District 6- please consider helping our campaign by making a donation. Donations can be made via my website at http://www.thepeoplefordenisemcgill.org/Contact-Us.html.

    Thank you as we go into a countdown (16 days) towards what I hope becomes a new and improved School Board.

    Denise McGill
    Candidate District 6
