Campaign Highlights, September 20, 2020
A BEACON OF JUSTICE
Our nation mourns the passing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Thomasina speaks for us all with this statement: “The heavens got much brighter last night because of the trail blazer who was welcomed. She was a fighter for equal rights for all. Even though we will miss her, we know we have an angel on our side. Our hearts go out to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's family and friends during their time of mourning.”
A mighty torch has been passed to us. Now we must carry the flame together with HOPE.
“THIS IS WHY I RUN”
Thomasina learns of many needs while meeting with diverse people across the 8th District. Young adults worry about the quality and affordability of education. Older Hoosiers fear for the continuity of Social Security and healthcare while wondering what happened to the spirit of unity and moral fiber exemplified by the “Greatest Generation.” And people of all ages suffer the effects of a fragile economy and jobs that fail to pay a living wage. These voters have one thing in common: they know that 8th District residents deserve better representation than they've been getting.
Thomasina has spent her entire life living and working in Indiana. She understands the 8th District's needs firsthand, and remains committed to improving the lives of her Hoosier neighbors.

On September 19, Thomasina had a great time visiting with the Vanderburgh Co. Democrats and Evansville "Nasty Women" at Vann Park, followed by a meet and greet with the Posey County Democrats in Mount Vernon.

DID YOU KNOW?
Hope in 8 yard signs are restocked! If you want one (and who doesn't?) contact us and a team member will deliver it right to your door.
Unfortunately, “Thomasina for Congress” yard signs have been stolen in several 8th District counties. If your sign is taken, contact us and we'll bring you a new one. Consider locating signs in a well lit area and/or within range of a security camera.
This is frustrating for us all, but please do not retaliate in kind. Aside from violating our neighbors' First Amendment rights, theft of yard signs is punishable by up to a $5,000 fine and 1 year in jail. Learn more here: https://www.tristatehomepage.com/.../posey-county.../
These signs are the most economical way to spread awareness to voters, but they are still very expensive to replace. Your campaign contribution will help defray the cost so we can make sure everybody who wants a yard sign can have one right up to Election Day. Please chip in to help Thomasina win this race. We remain very grateful for your support. Let's do this together! https://secure.actblue.com/donate/hope-in-8-1
Sadly, Covid-19 continues to heavily impact Indiana. Please continue social distancing practices. When you go out, wear a well fitted mask that covers your nose, mouth, and chin. Together we can flatten the curve and hasten a return to normal life.
