Jared Wight - Bernie Delegate

My name is Jared Wight and I am a national delegate for Bernie Sanders. I'm honored to have been given the opportunity to represent Missouri's 5th Congressional District at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on July 24-29. 

I will be covering approximately half the cost of the trip personally. This fundraiser will cover the other half.

I've been Feelin' the Bern since the "filibuster" in 2010. As I watched this unknown Senator from Vermont speak so passionately for the poor and middle-class people of this country, my immediate reaction was skepticism. How could someone of his stature truly care about ordinary, everyday people like me? Surely this was just your run-of-the-mill senatorial lip service, right?


Skepticism led to research, and research led to the realization that this guy was the real deal. A breath of fresh air. A reminder of what politics can and should be.

I continued to follow Bernie for the next few years, and found myself dreaming of the day he would be President.


And then, on April 30, 2015 it happened - Bernie announced that he would, in fact, be running to be the Democratic Nominee for President.


Since then I've donated both time and money to Bernie - phonebanking, data entry, texting supporters and voters, canvassing, spreading the word to family and friends. And in July I'll have the privilege of casting my vote for Bernie to be the Democratic Nominee for President, as well as advocating for his issues, our issues, to be included in the Democratic Platform.

As Bernie always says it's not about me, it's about us. Bernie's campaign was built on small contributions from lots of people, hopefully this fundraiser can use that same model. With your help our voices will be heard at the Democratic National Convention in July.

Thanks for your support.

Feel the Bern!
