Here’s what I just sent to Ronen’s office. Just a note, by the way, Ronen’s staffer helping us is her Chief of Staff Carolyn Goossen. Which feels pretty good to me.
Again, thank you so much for your help.
Attached, please find the PDF of our ask. I can give you text if you’d prefer to put the first page on your letterhead.
We have been in contact with:
Catie Arbona in Assemblymember Chiu’s office: email@example.com
Alex Wong in Senator Wiener’s office: firstname.lastname@example.org
Jeff Sparks in Senator Wiener’s office: Jeff.Sparks@sen.ca.gov
As for a cover note, here is something you can edit to your heart’s content.
Dear Jeff, Alex and Catie,
Supervisor Hillary Ronen is very interested in the success of Noisebridge’s campaign to create a new space in the Mission District. Noisebridge’s work meets several important goals of our office, first and foremost by bringing access to technology and learning to all people without charging anyone a dime to participate. Their users are significantly lower income and less white and male than the tech industry, making them a key partner in our shared goal of making our region’s prosperity more accessible to all.
As you know, Noisebridge is in the beginning phase of a $4m campaign. We hope you can secure $500,000 as a down payment to get the ball rolling.
You can be in contact with Josef Krebs at email@example.com if you have any questions about Noisebridge or this request.
Thank you for your consideration,
Chief of Staff
Office of San Francisco Supervisor Hillary Ronen
