"Snow sculpture trading cards" or campaign lit - you decide.

A message from Harry's campaign Chairman, Mike Jaros:


Dear Friend,

After thirty years of pouring his heart, soul and personal finances into the Duluth Schools Harry’s ready to pour more into them. He’s also trying to raise a little money for the Duluth Public Schools Endowment Fund which gives our teachers grants to experiment in their classrooms.

As an enticement for a donation to the Welty for School Board campaign we’re offering a deck of fifty “trading cards” of Harry’s snow sculptures. He’ll be passing cards out one card per household as he goes door-to-door but you may know someone who might like a full set of 50 snow sculpture trading cards in their Christmas stocking or for Hanukkah. If so, we’ll send you that deck for any contribution over $15. If you want multiple decks we’ll send more for additional $15 increments.

Just fill out the information below and enclose it with your check in the accompanying envelope:

How many card decks do you want at 1 set per $15 donation?* _________
*Minnesota state law limits individual donations to $500 per individual or $1,000 per couple.
Occupation and place of work are required for individual donations of $100 or more.

Harry recommends this post from his decade-old blog "lincolndemocrat.com" It begins:

Twenty years ago I regularly expressed concern about the long-term financial security of ISD 709. I used to call myself a "Cassandra." In 2010 I handed over that honorific to Loren Martell. Never would I have imagined that the Red Plan would plunge us into such a precarious situation that we would lose 30% of our students to neighboring school Districts, suffer a vast increase in our classroom sizes, and commit tens of millions of our general fund to paying off bank loans for new buildings.

Thanks for visiting.
