LP Monday Message: Voters want more options

August 31, 2009

Take a look at our website: $200,900

August 28, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

If you look at the donation counter on our home page, you will see we recently surpassed our $200,900 goal for online donations for 2009. We're at just over $210,000 at the time of writing this.

That's good news -- but unfortunately, there's bad news too. Our donations by mail are way down this year. Even though we cut our total budget from $1.8 million last year to $1.2 million this year, by June 30 we were already running $75,000 short.
