Pancake breakfast fundraiser, Sunday January 15 2012

I’m announcing a pancake breakfast fundraiser at my home this Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to noon. 113 Bonner Street, Dayton OH 45410. We’re asking for a suggested minimum donation of $5 for which you’ll get my scratch-made buttermilk pancakes, pure maple syrup and beverages. My treasurer also has insisted we offer granola, fresh fruit and yogurt for those who can’t do carbs or gluten. We’ll have stickers and t-shirts for sale as well.

I’ll be honest, I’m not a big fan of fundraisers like this, but the real reason politicians do them is because it’s a way to accept cash without reporting who exactly attends. It’s a way for anonymous giving that’s overlooked. I can make an awful lot of pancakes, so when you see over $1,000 come in, it may be because we had a lot of people, or big bills. Count this as a lesson learned from previous campaigns.

You’ll also be eating some amazing flapjacks and get to see how this candidate lives.

I’m guessing your treasurer doesn’t moonlight as a nutritionist.

David: The pancakes were yummy, the Community Coffee was great, and the crowd was nicely quiet and pleasant. My only suggestion is to put the maple syrup in the microwave to heat it a tad when serving?
