Weekly update for July 6
What a terrific week celebrating our nation’s birthday. The rain did not dampen spirits as we were out and about with many of our campaign team and supporters meeting people and having a good time. As much as a grassroots campaign owns you and your time, the benefit of sharing experiences with the voters more than compensates for any sacrifice.
One of the challenges of campaigning during the summer is grabbing the attention of the public about a future ballot, especially one that is 10 months off. People are vacationing with their families or there are so many other distractions that prevent people from realizing that the outcome in the May 2016 primary is directly influenced by the support we receive early in the campaign. A baseball season may last from April to September but you can lose the season by playing poorly in April. Even if your budget doesn’t allow a donation at this time, we still need your time and talents as a volunteer. So click on the volunteer button and join our team.
