I am planning to place a “Lost and Found” ad for Senator Burr in the News & Observer for 02/19.  Unfortunately, it’s a little outside my budget.

For one day, these are the prices:
A full-page ad would cost $8,155.
A half-page ad would cost $4,130.
A quarter-page ad would cost $2,135.
An eighth-page ad would cost $1,120.

I am therefore setting up this GoFundMe page.  I am going to contribute at least $100 of my own money toward this ad.  I would like to run the ad on Sunday 02/19, which means that the specs are due on Tuesday the 14th at 4pm.  I plan to buy the largest ad I can with the funds available at that time, and then donate the rest to a suitable charity that supports education, in protest of DeVos' cabinet confirmation.

Hi, everyone.

I have final approval and confirmation from the N&O that the ad will be running on 02/19. The lady I spoke with said that they will try to get it in the front section as well. Thanks so much for all of your support!

The N&O did say that legally the disclaimer has to say "paid for by Evalyn Johnson". If anyone contacts me about the ad, I will be very clear that this was a joint effort from more than a hundred NC constituents, and direct them to this GoFundMe.

Y'all have a great day, and be on the lookout Sunday!

Hi everyone,

Just spoke with the N&O and they said the ad should be good to go through on the 19th, they just need final confirmation of the specs and I need to fill out some paperwork.

Because I'm technically the one directly paying for the ad, it's probably going to say "Paid for by Evalyn Johnson" somewhere on it. If anyone asks, I will gladly direct them to the campaign's page ($2,000 raised by 112 people in 6 days! Y'all rock!)

There are also apparently going to be viewer-targeted online banners, which would usually direct to the candidate's campaign page (since this procedure is usually used by political candidates). Unfortunately, I don't have a website, so it'll just direct to an image of the ad instead. Hopefully that'll be okay. If we do continue doing call-outs like this for other elected officials (ahem, Tillis) I'll probably want to set up a website. If anyone has any suggestions on how to do that, please feel free to contact me on Facebook.

I'll let y'all know when the official approval comes through. Let me know if you have any questions--or suggestions!

Thanks,
Evalyn

Okay, y'all,

I'm going to call the N&O today and commit to a quarter-page ad. Please don't think this means you have to stop donating: as of right now this fund is at $1,720 of the $2,135 needed for a quarter-page ad, which leaves $415 for me to cover from my own funds.

Y'all have been absolutely AMAZING so far, and this is way more than I could ever afford myself. Once I've verified the specs and date of the ad with the N&O, I'll post another update to let you know when to be on the lookout for the ad.

Have a great Monday!

I send letter to Burr all the time and he never responds. Tillis will respond.

Evalyn, I agree with you that the ad would be most impactful directed at one senator at a time. Just to let you know I sent him an email regarding DeVos confirmation on 2/7/17 and I have yet to receive as response from him.

I am looking at the rates in the N&O, but not finding these numbers. Are these prices are for one day or more than one? Thanks, Annamaria

I have never been paid a dime to exercise my constitutional right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. And I am helping to pay for this ad with money I earned working and paying the taxes that pay your salary, Senator Burr.
