From: Nelson Diaz [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of Nelson Diaz Sent: Wednesday, March 18, 2015 6:03 PM To: Subject: Have you seen this? , It's been a busy week on the campaign trail, and with 62 days left we want to keep you updated on the latest campaign news. Today the Inquirer put out a piece on my Education Funding Plan naming it one of "the more detailed school funding plans being offered," and in the March/April edition of Hispanic Executive Magazine, the publication did an exciting profile on my career in law and I wanted to share with you some of the nice things they said. "The metaphor of the phoenix rising from the ashes may be a cliché, but it's one that seems applicable to the life of Nelson Diaz, who could have easily fallen through the cracks as a poverty-stricken youth of color. Raised in a series of rough New York City neighborhoods, the Dilworth Paxson partner spent his early childhood in and out of single-room occupancies and ratinfested tenements. The move to Harlem changed Diaz's life. After establishing a relationship by chance with Leroy Otis, a Negro League baseball player who would recruit and coach him for one of the best youth baseball teams in Harlem, Diaz shaped up and eventually shipped out to Temple University to study law. The rest is history. He became a trailblazer in the field. He has been credited with reforming public housing and the court system in Philadelphia, and his path has even led him to the White House, where he became the first presidentially appointed Latino general counsel. Diaz was also the first Latino judge in Pennsylvania's history."

To kick off Spring, tomorrow my campaign and I will be having a day of action, going door to door across the city as we build a grassroots campaign. I found that there is no better way to determine what is important to voters than to ask them, face to face. Support our efforts by making a donation of $5 or more. Help us spread our message to all corners of the city. One of my favorites times of the year is Spring in Philadelphia and after the cold Winter we’ve had I look forward to talking face to face about my plan to make this a better city. This election is not about me, it’s about making sure Philadelphia lives up to its full potential and creates opportunities for our next generation.

From: Ian Rivera [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of Ian Rivera Sent: Tuesday, March 24, 2015 10:37 AM To: Subject: Check this out , This morning, we released a brand new web video highlighting Nelson’s track record of leadership and why he's running for Mayor. Take a look at the video, then help us spread the word by sharing it with your family and friends. In less than two months Philadelphia will choose its next mayor; a decision that will have a tremendous impact on the future of our city for the next eight years and beyond. Philadelphia deserves better than what the current crop of career politicians has delivered. We have the opportunity to elect a leader with a career of service and track record of results. That's why the bandwagon is starting to get crowded. Last night, we were endorsed by the Latino Victory Fund, a major national organization dedicated to electing progressive Latino candidates. And this morning, the Philadelphia Daily News wrote a glowing profile of how Nelson's election "would be quite an achievement for a kid born to a single parent in Harlem." Make a donation of $10 or more today and help us make Philadelphia the city of opportunity — and don’t forget to watch the new web video and share it with your friends.
