National endorsements & local support

It has been an amazing three days measured by response from the public (who are the point of this campaign).

This evening, I received another national endorsement from Working Families. This is a fantastic organization, rapidly growing beyond its base in the Northeast, which already has a strong track record fighting for working Americans: equal pay, predictable scheduling, paid sick leave, etc. I’m proud to be one of their endorsed candidates, and to help promote the Working Families mission here in Ohio.

At the same time, page 12 of this week’s paper brings another citizen endorsement from here in Lakewood:

Tristan has been an active member of the community, and stood up for what he believes is right. As I have volunteered with him and gotten to know him over the past few years, I have no doubt that he will place the views of the community first, even if that means taking difficult positions when necessary. I hope that the people of Lakewood will take a closer look at the candidates and seriously consider Tristan Rader for city council.

Thank you, Sarah Kolberg!

Finally, there are almost too many people to thank for the excellent turnout at Making Change Monday evening. But thank you to Alexis Antes, especially, for the energy and music throughout the evening. Thank you Around the Corner for hosting us. And thank you to everyone who showed up and shared your time with my campaign, Monday night or at any point.
