Top Reasons to Vote for Sue to Attend Netroots Nation: Pls Help Me Earn This Scholarship!

I’m in the running for a partial scholarship to attend the national progressive “Netroots Nation” conference this June in San Jose, California. I’m the only person from Pgh (only 3 from PA total) and one of the few LGBTQ persons in the list. The top five vote getters will receive a scholarship and 15 more scholarships will awarded based on merit.

Last year, I talked NN organizers into donating excess totes to fight hunger!

I need your help – I was in the top five until this weekend. This weekend, I spent most of my time doing Earth Day stuff, working on the Bill Peduto campaign and prepping for the Dyke and Trans March. I also spent time with Ledcat’s family and helped a friend with her dog. Life stuff. Activist stuff. Make Pgh better stuff.

And because I wasn’t working to get votes (it really is a full-time job), I slipped into 6th place by over 50 votes. OH NO!

Please help! Click here and vote – one vote per person.

Top Reasons to Vote for Sue to Attend Netroots Nation

  1. She’s possibly THE ONLY former Rick Santorum intern who will be there.
  2. She’s THE ONLY blog blocked by her own City government as “lesbian porn.”
  3. She’s going to wear Pittsburgh gear during her entire trip – so far Commonwealth Press, The Cotton Factory, YaJagoff.com and The Pirates have offered to supply her with awesome Pgh attire. Imagine the pictures! The stories from the Pittsburgh diaspora!
  4. In 2009 and 2012, she persuaded the Netroots organizers to donate excess tote bags to food pantries.
  5. Facebook BLOCKED the photo below for reasons unknown. Blocked!
