Yoon: I Might Run, So Gimme!

In a contribution-soliciting email from Sam Yoon to supporters this afternoon, the city councilor taps directly into the notion that he might run for mayor in '09. This is a good ploy whether you're running or not, but if you get this direct and then don't run, donors might feel duped. Here's the pitch:

A lot has been written about next year’s mayor’s race.  You may have even read some of the stories about who’s in and who’s out, and yes, my name is being mentioned.  See the most recent Boston Globe article from Wednesday.

While I’m still considering all my options, the insiders say it takes a hundred thousand dollars going into next year to be competitive.

It looks like we may fall just short of our year-end goal.

Your help now will make the differenceLink to donation page

That’s why I’m asking you to please make a contribution of $100, $50, and $25 - anything you can afford

Your small donation will have a big impact.

You will be sending a message that we’re ready for new leadership with vision to move Boston forward.

Thank you, and may 2009 be a healthy, happy and prosperous new year for everyone.
