Michael Monti: We Need Your Help As Election Day Nears

Dear Supporter,

Election day is May 15th and we need your help to bring us to victory. To see my vision for Tempe's future click here. My goal is to make our community more innovative, our economy more productive, our seniors better served by their local government, and our neighborhoods more secure. Over these past months I've worked very hard to deliver that message but I need your help. I have done my best to speak with every interested voter, but there just aren't enough hours in the day. I wish there were, that's why I am asking for your help.

We need supporters to:

Make calls on election day asking Tempeans to vote for Michael Monti

Get a list of neighborhood voters and ask them to vote for Michael Monti

Spread the word at the polls on election day

Put up signs

We are challenging an entrenched political dynasty. Your efforts will send a powerful message.

If you can help please contact
