How can you add your support?

Recently I was asked by a few potential supporters out of the New York 22nd Congressional District how they might lend their support to my exploratory committee and the 2014 Congressional election. What were the top things that could help in this process?

It’s a good question that I have often heard as I have spoken to people across the NY-22. So here are a few of the current things that I would suggest at this time. Of course as donations, volunteers and supplies change so may the priority and nature of support.

1) Money. It does not get more simple than that. Elections and campaigns cost hordes of cash, no matter how grassroots the effort or how great the candidate. Donations provide the paper, signs, buttons, commercials, and pay for professionals like accountants that every campaign must have.

2) Word of mouth. From sharing some of my Youtube videos and Facebook/Twitter messages to likes, retweets, talking to friends, and sending letters to radio and television hosts, nothing is more effective than letting people you know what is going on and why you feel strongly about things.

3) Volunteer. I can’t be everywhere in a District that has 770,000 people and is 2 1/2 hours top to bottom and 1 1/2 hours across. Putting up signs, handing out flyers, showing up at events, making calls to let others know about me, and more. Working together we can make the powers in charge recall that the ultimate power of Government is held by the public and not politicians.

On more specific things that can be done:

  • Donating a 2 1/4″ button machine (and supplies)
  • Printer ink
  • Stamps/Envelopes
  • Creating petitions to have every radio talk host in the NY-22 interview me about what I plan to do
  • As stated above, share my website, videos and tweets/posts
  • Petitions to every television news organization serving the NY-22 to look into who I am and what I am doing
  • Set up voter meet and greets, like the one I just attended in Vestal NY, where people interested can meet me in person and get answers to their questions
  • Set up fundraising events – like bake sales, bands, and other events where even a few of the proceeds can go to our efforts (and hopefully charities like Wounded Warrior Project)
  • Call/Write letters to people and organizations of influence (like Carl Paladino, Herman Cain, Col. Allen West, Bob Duvall, Gary Sinise, Club for Growth, ect.) so they can decide if they too want to be involved

    There are tons of more things, and I am open to suggestions of course, so the best thing is to get in touch and ask what’s on the list today.

    The exploratory website is The link for donations (secure via Paypal) is at or checks/money orders can go to: Friends of Michael Vasquez – PO Box 515, Binghamton NY 13902

    As always, I am open and ready to speak to anyone with questions. I hope this helps.

  • What did you get for your vote in 2012? Video

    Congress has a 16% approval rating, and political gridlock is running rampant. Scandals fill the airwaves, as Government overreach attacks the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendments. Yet incumbent Representatives are re-elected 93% of the time – in 2012 it was a 90% re-election rate. The problems are obvious, and the solution can be as well.

    We expect more than special interest favorites and political party preferences. Congress needs to reconnect with the public. We need Representatives that will work for constituents and fulfill their obligations in office as well as live up to campaign promises.

    Let’s remind voters that there is a choice in 2014. Let’s work together to tell Congress that they can’t just sit back and get re-elected for doing nothing. With your donation and support, we will put this video advertisement on televisions across the New York 22nd Congressional District.
