William Walker for College Board!

$1,615 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 27 people in 51 months
UPDATE:

We made our first goal of $1,000 in less than three days!  This campaign is building momentum but it is not over!  My budget for window signs alone is $1,000.  I have more than a dozen endorsements, which means another $100 to each organization that endorses me as a token of my appreciation and a bit of a payment for putting me all over their slate card and home page.

BREAKING:  William Walker receives the endorsement of the San Francisco Labor Council and the San Francisco Bay Area Reporter!

Being a child of labor, with a shop steward mother and transit union president father, and being a proud, prominent member of the LGBT community, it brings me great pride to receive such prominent endorsements.  Check out my home page for the latest in endorsement, I have more than two dozen!   http://www.yeswillcan.org.

Join a movement!  Help us reach our goal.  Donate to the William Walker for San Francisco College Board campaign today!  #yeswillcan #SaveCCSF

More about William Walker:

I grew up in San Francisco, about a mile from the largest community college campus in the nation.  No one ever talked about that.  My friends always told me it was where the losers went.  My senior year, I was admitted to City College of San Francisco.

What City College was for me at 17, is what it continues to be for me at 35.  I found a community at CCSF that didn't exist anywhere else.  I studied geography and politics while friends of mine enrolled in the nursing or radiologic technology programs, more challenging than any in the entire nation.  

I ran successfully for student government three times, which included a term as student trustee at the time CCSF was placed on show cause with its accrediting agency.  I ensured that more than 2 dozen students were appointed to 15 committees, making their voices heard at the most critical time in the school's 80 year history.

Right now is a critical time for you to support my campaign.  

At this time, we have no African American male elected officials in San Francisco.  I am the only queer, African American male running for public office this November.

By donating now, you can ensure that the board has a progressive voice at the table to ensure that the largest community college in the nation can continue to educate its high school graduates, workers, English Language learners, and lifelong learners of the San Francisco community.

Your donation of five dollars, or five hundred dollars, or anywhere between, can ensure that my dream of serving in political office can come true in a city where the dreams of many working class people of color like myself are deferred.  Don't defer.  Fund Will for the win!

Every donor to my campaign will be listed as a contributor on my website.   And the first ten people to donate will get a commemorative T-Shirt from my campaign.

And if I win this little election, you're all invited to the party!

And remember, vote William Walker for College Board! Put CCSF First!

Good Morning Friends and Supporters:

October has been a monumental month for my campaign! I received three major newspaper endorsements: the San Francisco Chronicle, the SF Bay Guardian and the SF Bay Area Reporter! I am the only candidate in my campaign supported by the San Francisco Labor Council, the San Francisco Tenants Union, the San Francisco Green Party and the Sierra Club! I am endorsed by more neighborhood clubs than my competitors. I am the candidate who knows most about CCSF with a track record with the student body unmatched by anyone in either race.

We are only 21 days out until Election Day! Many of my friends have already voted. But a number of voters are waiting until November 4th to walk that ballot into the polls. In my last run, my major boost was on Election Day where I received more than half of my 50,000 votes. Help me reach those voters with a contribution right now!

My campaign is on Facebook, Twitter, and http://www.yeswillcan.org. Get involved! Make sure the 2-year CCSF seat is aken by a true outspoken advocate for higher education in San Francisco!

Vote William Walker for College Board this November 4th. But donate right now! Thank you.

With less than 30 days left in the campaign (25 to be exact), I am very proud to have received 30 endorsements. From the San Francisco Bay Guardian to the San Francisco Bay Area Reporter, from the San Francisco Labor Council to the San Francisco Tenants Union, they all agree that William Walker is the choice for the 2-year seat on the San Francisco Community College Board. More endorsements can be found here: http://www.yeswillcan.org.

Beginning today, October 9, we are launching the #igot5onwill portion of the campaign!

We have raised over $1,200 in 12 days online. There are also campaigns going on offline that are doing pretty well. We are entering the home stretch of the campaign and I want as many of my Facebook friends to give a $5 donation as humanly possible. Let's see how many five dollar donations I can raise in the next five days! When you donate, share the donation with your social networks with the hashtags #igot5onwill #yeswillcan #saveccsf. This will build momentum and encourage others like yourself to donate to this exciting grassroots campaign!

You can use this GoFundMe link to donate, or mail donations to William Walker for College Board 2014, 1728 Ocean Avenue, #258, San Francisco, California 94112.

Good Friday Morning friends and family! I want to remind folks that we are 32 days away from an exciting election with a great deal of initiatives and candidates on the ballot. I want to thank every donor that has taken the time to give thus far, but I know that a lot of my friends and family have yet to donate. This victory is what our community needs right now. With everyday San Franciscans being priced out daily, and the cost of education on the rise year after year, we need a candidate, like myself, to continue advocating for the underdog in San Francisco. I graduated from City College and will fight to ensure that it continues to provide the nurses, medical technicians and auto mechanics needed to keep San Francisco running. Your donation helps me get the word out about progressive campaigns. To create that glossy lit that will turn out the vote.

Have you donated to William Walker for College Board? Do it now. More details on the campaign and my nearly two dozen endorsers at yeswillcan.org. Thank you.
