With Election Day fast approaching, our airwaves and mailboxes are overloaded with political campaign messages. Mailers, radio spots, campaign stop coverage,  and TV spots – which are by far the worst. Charges of political corruption, misuse of tax dollars, questionable dealings, and ineffective leadership all illustrated through grainy, unflattering pictures and narrated by voiceover actors who have mastered the not-so-subtle art of infusing every syllable with disgust and innuendo.

Is it any wonder we find ourselves wishing there was a campaign committed to telling it like it really is and focused on building a better future? Well, there is: the East Aurora Co-op Capital Campaign. We even have lawn signs!

So, here’s telling it like it is: Over the last three months, we have raised $625,500. Every dollar is a reflection of the commitment and support of our 950+ member-owners and we thank you. We need to raise $249,500 more by November 15. It’s an ambitious goal, and it may come down to the wire – some of the greatest campaigns in history have.

Voting for the Co-op by investing in the Capital Campaign is a vote for fresh, healthy food that supports local farmers and producers and strengthens the local economy. And that’s a campaign promise we can’t wait to keep! Our only opponents in this campaign are time and the misconception that someone else will make this campaign a success. It’s up to each one of us to step up and be counted. So we humbly ask for your support and your investment to capitalize the East Aurora Co-op.
