Red Beard Party Convention, Aug. 11 @ Takk House

PETITION TO CREATE RED BEARD BALLOT LINE IN TROY "There were people who said 'Oh you could never win an election with a beard like that. I don't want to change the way I am in order to run for office." -- Anasha Cummings for Troy City Council, At-Large On Tuesday, Aug. 11, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Cummings' supporters will host a "Red Beard Party Convention" at the Takk House, a unique downtown Troy event venue located at 55 3rd St. The free admission event will feature music by DJ Trumastr, a cash bar by Rare Form Brewing Company and more. Lighting and Effects by Nick Nealon of Nicky Lightz Productions. Event Planning Assistance and Logistic Support by Corey Aldrich of 2440 Design Studio. Guests, who are eligible, will add their signatures to the Red Beard independent nominating petition. Voter registration forms will be available. Donations to "Anasha Est," the committee to elect Anasha Cummings, will be welcome. RSVP: TALK TO THE BEARD Every guest at the Red Beard Party Convention will receive a wearable cardstock red beard mask, featuring a hand-illustrated cartoon beard by local artist Ben Karis-Nix on the front and information about the Anasha Cummings » Troy City Council campaign on the backside. (Watch video to see this fantastic campaign swag in action.) "It's really helpful as a candidate to be this recognizable and to be able to be seen and flagged down from across the street," said Cummings. "When I'm walking on the street, it's quite often that someone will come up to me and say 'Hey you're the guy running for office,' and then I'll have an interesting conversation with a constituent. People come over and talk to me about what they want addressed or what they're concerned about in our city." WHY FORM NEW BALLOT LINE? “I believe strongly in the power of democracy. But I have many supporters who don't belong to a political party and don't want to, because they feel disenfranchised by political insiders," said Cummings, an independent Democrat backed by Team Troy, a coalition of nine candidates running together with Working Families Party support. "The Red Beard line is not a formal political party, so it offers a way for anyone to vote for me without having to lend support a specific party. Plus it is fun." Watch this amazing and hilarious video to learn more about Anasha’s unique campaign for local office. Wait till the very end to see Adam Cresko of Roosevelt Grooming Company cut Anasha's beard. Feat. Original campaign music by Ragliacci (Kristoph DiMaria), the cast of Star Wars, Billy Possum and you, Anasha's supporters. For more information about Anasha's campaign platform, visit: RSVP:

Pledge Now or The Red Beard Bows Out

WOULD YOU VOTE FOR ANASHA ON NOV. 3? Pledge Now or The Red Beard Bows Out If you want Anasha Cummings represent you on the Troy City Council, you need to him know for sure that you will vote for him in the Nov. 3 General Election. Anasha needs to hear from 1,000 registered voters by Oct. 9 or he will gracefully bow out of the race. It’s crunch time, people, and we’re now in this campaign’s Kickstarter-style, all or nuthin’ phase. Go to and pledge now. THE STORY SO FAR Everybody likes Anasha. But will you vote for him in the Nov. 3 General Election? Although he is a life-long registered Big “D” Democrat, Anasha Cummings, 26, fell just shy of winning the Sept. 10 Democratic Primary.* He did, however, win nominations from the Green Party and the Working Families Party. That means that you will not find Anasha’s name on the Democratic line on the ballot in the Nov. 3 General Election. But you will find him listed on the Green and WFP lines. Now, we know, because we’ve talked to many of you, that Anasha has a broad base of support across all political party lines -- Democratic, Republican, Working Families, Green, Independence. We know many of Anasha’s supporters are “Blanks” meaning they are not enrolled in any political party. And we also know that “Blanks” are the second largest voting block in the City of Troy after the Democrats. The question is: will you vote for Anasha Cummings in the Nov. 3 General Election if he stays in the race? He needs to hear from 1,000 of you who are registered to vote by Oct. 9. It’s make or break time. Let’s do this. WHAT’S THIS CAMPAIGN ALL ABOUT? Anasha Cummings has a great sense of humor, and he doesn’t mind poking fun of himself. But make no mistake, he’s no joke. He received 896 total votes in the Democratic, Green & WFP primary races this September, and that’s not shabby for any candidate, of any age, in any party. But it’s worth noting that Anasha earned those votes at age 26 without the endorsement of a major party but rather with a strong record of community involvement and a substantive campaign platform. Anasha Cummings is a candidate like no other, running a campaign that throws out all the conventions of local politics. He is audaciously working to address the challenges of our day at the local level. His platform has four areas of focus: Citizenship Infrastructure Global Perspective Chocolate You can read more about them at Anasha Cummings » Troy City Council ###
