Republican County Council Candidate Has Unique Fundraising Appeal: “Who Can’t Afford One Dollar?”

March 26th, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

We’ve lately received emails from candidates and tipsters, that showcase the creativity being employed this cycle to raise money. We received an email from the Harris Campaign with this link to a rather amusing video appealing for money. Attorney General Jay Nixon is asking supporters for five dollar donations, and now, we present to you the ultimate recession proof fundraising e-mail letter. Compliments of St. Louis County 4th District Republican candidate, Eugene Doaks:


Eugene on the “Price is Right,” just missing the Dollar!

Please Read the Entire Email…

To begin let me assure you that this is not a scam, nor is it spam. If you are receiving this message, but feel that you do not know me personally, then, I have gotten your name and email address from a mutual friend who either lives in St. Louis County, or is affiliated with St. Louis County in some way.

My name is Eugene Dokes. I am the next county councilman that will be elected within St. Louis County. If you or your family members live in St. Louis County (Especially North County), you may want to pay more attention to the 2008 election. This year, citizens will decide if they want to continue the same type of leadership that has lead this district for the past 8 years, or if change in the community should be accompanied by change in the leadership.

I am constantly hearing from people in this district that they feel that the county government neglects this particular area. I vow to put an end to that. This year, let’s tell the county government that we are making a decision based on a new vision for our community, and not race, party affiliation, status, or parental influence.

For those wishing to assist in turning North County back around there are a number of things that you can do to help.

However, this email is focused on one particular factor. Spreading the word that even $1 can help to make change. I am asking you to donate, ONE DOLLAR!! That’s it, just one dollar towards my campaign. You can give more if you would like, however… we are only asking for a $1 commitment at this time. Who can’t afford one dollar?

Please mail a check for $1 or more, and then email all of the friends on your list asking them to do the same. Together we can make a difference in the community, and with a sacrifice of only one dollar… why not help?

Checks can be made out to:

Dokes four County Council:

3831 Vaile Ave. #22

Florissant, MO 63034

For those wishing to learn more about the campaign, feel free to email me, or visit the website at www.edokes.com

If you would like to be removed from this email list please reply to this email with the words: “Please Remove Me” as the subject.

Thank You Very Much,

Eugene Dokes


District 4 County Council Candidate

STL Post Dispatch: “Also in the 4th District, Eugene Dokes, a real estate agent from Spanish Lake, filed to become the first Republican to run for the seat since 1996.” Read more…
