Alpha Eta Alumnus for State Representative

As many of you may be aware, Jason Van Buren, an alumnus of Alpha Kappa Psi Alpha Eta chapter, is seeking election to the Minnesota House of Representatives in District 44A—St. Louis Park/Hopkins. Jason is a lifetime resident of the State of Minnesota. He has graduated of the Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota majoring in Finance and Management Information Systems. Jason has had a history of civic involvement including but not limited to the St. Louis Park Human Rights Commission, as well as extensive involvement with several Scouts organizations.

This letter is to both inform you of his decision to run and to ask for your support. In challenging an incumbent, there is a great deal of work that must be completed; however, such work requires adequate funding.

Minnesota has a program in which contributions to candidates who have chosen the public funding option are reimbursable one time up to $50 per individual and $100 per couple. Should you wish to contribute, the campaign will provide you with a receipt and the necessary form to be sent to the State. Once you complete the form and send it to the State, you will be reimbursed up to the aforementioned amounts.

In order to qualify for the public funding program, the Van Buren campaign must raise at least $1500 in donations of $50 or less. These contributions must be in the campaign account by September 1, 2006 and, thus, must be received several days prior to that date. For more information regarding the reimbursement program you may visit the MN Campaign Finance Board website.

If you are at all willing to contribute, please do so as soon as possible. You may contribute via mail or PayPal. Instructions for both methods can be found on www.jasonvanburen.com. Should you have any questions please email volunteer@jasonvanburen.com.

If you would like to contribute through mail, please send your contribution with your name, phone number, address, and employer to the address below:

Jason Van Buren Volunteer Committee

Coon Rapids , MN 55448
