Weekly update for June 14
One the hardest lessons to learn as a candidate is time management. You can’t “bank” time and once it’s gone it’s gone. This past week was a great example of that as I weaved time raising funds and connecting with some of the “families” that are important to me. I attended meetings with my Kiwanis family; had breakfast with my Cobb GOP family; welcomed a new bride to my Marine Corps League family; and relished the grandchildren of our children’s families.
These “families” are just some of my “network” that keeps me grounded. I am accountable to them. They are reminders that a campaign is as much about why you run as about how you run. In the end, a campaign is about developing a relationship with your voters–and asking to be invited into their “family.” I interpret my obligation and contract with them as important as anything that I did in the Marine Corps. In a sense, they are all my “troops” and I am committed to working hard every day to uphold their trust in me.
