2009 voter guides now available for download – Can you help us put them in the mail?

Thanks to the generous support of



The Daily Progress

, we have been able to print two great looking voter guides covering the 2009 local elections.

Now Charlottesville Tomorrow needs your help to ensure we can deliver all 25,000 copies to every voting household in Charlottesville and Albemarle with a contested race for City Council or the Board of Supervisors.

This week we need to raise about $5,000 to cover the mailing costs for this important publication

.  I hope you will consider

making a tax-deductible gift to help us distribute these voter guides

and to help the community make an informed choice in the November 3rd general election.

Donations may also be mailed to:

Charlottesville Tomorrow, 230 Court Square, Suite 201, Charlottesville, VA 22902

Charlottesville Tomorrow has produced voter guides for every local election since 2005.  In the past, we had full funding to ensure the voter guide was made available to each voter.  In the current economic climate, we have had to get creative and find partners to help us publish the 2009 editions.  To put the voter guides in the mail, we just need a little more financial help from our subscribers to get the job done.  As someone who trusts and values our in-depth content on local elections, I hope you will join



The Daily Progress

to make this year’s voter guide a complete success.

Here is some feedback we received in a recent election:

“I’d like to take a moment to thank you and your co-workers for producing and distributing the Charlottesville Tomorrow Voter Guide….Perhaps your thoughtful, apolitical approach will inspire others to work toward a democratic process which brings people together to discuss our commonalities, and at the least, you have empowered citizens to vote.”

Also, be sure to visit our

Election Watch 2009 website

where you can download copies of the voter guide, review candidate bios, listen to candidate interviews, and even watch videos of recent candidate forums.  Thank you for your support!
