FROM: John W. Brantuk
To My Dear Friends and Supporters,
I am writing you today regarding two very serious items:
1. To announce that I am running for the California State
Assembly, District 56;
2. To let you know that I urgently need your help in this
Please read on . . .
Due to the combination of redistricting and term limits, there is no
incumbent running for reelection in the 56th Assembly District. This
resulting open seat is a wonderful opportunity for us to really make a
difference in our State Government. As of this writing, there are
only 2 major party candidates running for this seat; a Liberal
Democrat, and me, a dedicated Conservative Constitutional Republican.
There is one pressing problem, however. We must raise the funds to
pay the exorbitant filing fees (approximately $1000) required by the
State of California in order to qualify for the ballot by the
beginning of the coming week, as well as many other miscellaneous
expenses. As I write this, we are far short of the goal.
Please note that no other Conservative Republican has stepped up to
run for this open seat, and if we do not raise the funds necessary to
secure my place on the ballot, we may well find ourselves in the
untenable position of having a liberal Democrat running virtually
unopposed for this seat. We must not allow that to happen!
Many of you have encouraged me to run for this office; I ask you now
to please help make that possible by sending the largest contribution
you possibly can today.
Please make your checks out to:
"Brantuk for Assembly" or "John W. Brantuk" (whichever is easier)
and mail them today, or as soon as possible to:
Brantuk for Assembly
P.O. Box 171
Whittier, CA 90608

One last note: Please be aware that once elected it is likely that I
will serve only one term in the Assembly. My actions in office will
not be colored by thoughts of reelection, but only by doing what is
right and what truly upholds the Constitution.
My purpose in office will not be to make friends; my purpose will be
to make a positive difference, no matter who's feathers I ruffle.
Thank you for your support. I value it more that I can express.
John W. Brantuk, Sr.
Candidate for Assembly, 56th District
Current Chairman, 58th Assembly District Republican Central Committee
Member, California Republican Party

P.S. Whether or not you are in a position to make a donation today,
please forward this request on to others who may be able to help. We
must raise the necessary funds quickly.
Time is of the essence.
Again, I sincerely thank you.
