Don Williams for Calistoga City Council launch party

Dear Supporters of Calistoga,

Thank you for your encouragement in recent years.  Besides addressing important topics like water and the fairgrounds, I’m interested in maintaining Calistoga values—a small town, uncrowded hospitality, sustainability, an unpretentious quality of life.  Many of us have already advocated for them over the years by letters to editors or public comments.  But those efforts are frustrated and the values vulnerable if the city council decides otherwise.  The votes on the council make the difference.  That’s why I’m a candidate for this office—to secure a vote and uphold the values we share.

I hope you will join me at a party to launch this campaign, on Saturday August 11, at 59 View Road, at 6:00 p.m.  We’ll talk about some of these issues, and ways you can help get me elected as your representative on November 6.  The attachment to this email has more information about how you can assist.  The Calistoga we appreciate will disappear without your participation.

(On Saturday, I’ll provide some seating and refreshments.  If you want to bring a folding chair or additional food or beverages, please feel free to do so.)

If you’d like to contribute funds to this effort, send your donation ($200 max) to:  Friends of Donald Williams, P.O. Box 273, Calistoga, CA 94515.  Your donations will go towards publicity for getting me and our point of view a place on the council.

Meanwhile, in the coming months I’ll go door to door to visit every voter in town, listening to their concerns and learning how to be a good representative for us Calistogans.

Thank you for your ideas, support, and encouragement.  I look forward to seeing you on August 11.  If you know others who share our interests, please let me know and I’ll invite them too.
