Dylan Parker IL Delegate to the DNC
$4,435 of $5,000 goal
However, just like Bernie, I can't do it alone. I appreciate every cent of the $4,435 donated to me during my fundraiser to attend the Democratic National Convention as a Bernie delegate. I am indebted to your kindness. Though, I need to ask you for another favor: do you think you could pitch in a few bucks to my campaign for Rock Island City Council? As a delegate, I had limited power to affect real change. As a council-member, I can put into practice for my town the progressive values I hold dearly.
If you would be so kind, please visit www.parkerfor5th.org and check out my plans for Rock Island, Illinois. You can also find me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MrRockIsland. A link to donate to my campaign is available on the campaign's website.
Again, I am humbled by your previous generosity, but I really need you now! Now is when we put the boots on the ground for the real grassroots change that Bernie spoke of. The revolution is far from over and with your help, we can succeed in Rock Island, Illinois.
Thank you for your attention.

Hope you can join us. Solidarity!
P.S., I was interviewed by Tom Ashbrook on NPR's On Point program immediately after the DNC roll call vote on Tuesday. You can listen to a recording here: http://www.wbur.org/onpoint/2016/07/26/democratic-delegate-roundtable
It clarifies my position on several points and was an incredible experience. Together, we move forward. As Bernie says:
The Revolution Continues...!
I am really pissed that I gave you a red cent to delegate for Bernie Sanders. The reason I am so pissed isbecause of the lie you told Susan Voight about the discord between the Hillary & Bernie delegates. So you were a plant for hillary right? On top of it you were one of the delegates that asked for the most about of money for your"trip". Im really ashamed for you!
Well thanks for getting there and casting your vote. You say stories were fabricated and HRC won fair and square. But all those hacked emails show the opposite. The entire primary season was a sham. Bernie educated people, yes. But the DNC was never going to let him become the nominee. I'm in the lawsuit against them, and if you're not, you are accepting the notion that fraud is fine as long as you win. The exact opposite of what Bernie stands for. He HAD to endorse HRC but we are free to vote for the only decent, and in fact wonderful choice, Jill Stein and the Green Party. If everyone who voted for Bernie, and who WANTED to vote for Bernie but couldn't, cast a vote for Jill Stein she would win in a landslide. The media is scaring us into obeying them. Here's info on Stein if anyone is interested: https://youtu.be/9tu7PEup2lM
Yes, indeed...Dylan. You went too far with your "lost fair and square." Circulated your views to see if the groups and other attendees are fabricating...or you are lying. Stilling striving for clarity, but there are many who donated to you that are none too happy with your position.
Interesting. I have to settle in my mind that the other groups are fabricating stories. That is a super uncomfortable notion. I am not arguing with you when I question your "fair and square." But I wonder, at the very least, what are your thoughts on Bernie not having been provided fair opportunity from the start?
In your opinion, were there problems at the convention...such as we are hearing? Like Hillary nit getting enough votes at a morning vote...so they did another in the afternoon..where she won? Did Bernie delegates lose their seats to hired sit-ins? I am curious as to whether these stories are accurate or sensationalized.
