Did you read Tony Strickland's editorial in The Acorn about our budget problems? There aren't many surprises from conservative Republican as he lists the standard Republican talking points about cutting services for illegal immigration ( no mention of tougher sanctions on employers), overspending being the source of the problem, and a Reagan connection at the end.
If you are interested in debating his budget priorities leave a comment but the part I am interested in is his campaign strategy. Tony Strickland has already shown he is going to work hard to get elected. His campaign is organizing precinct walks, sending out press releases, organizing online including using FaceBook, and using free media to up his name ID while pushing his views.
Others might try to do this in the last few weeks of a campaign when the papers will be full of press releases and letters to the editor from their supporters. But Tony is sending out his arguments to tens of thousands of people FOR FREE!
I am starting a new weekly award. It will be an award to the local politician that has "won" that week. It is based off of innovative campaign strategy, endorsements, fund raising successes, and media coverage.
Will Tony win this week? I will announce my pick Friday.
How many weeks will Tony Strickland win before Hannah Beth Jackson starts bringing her campaign to the public?
Tony Strickland has been successful in politics for a mixture of reasons but one of them is because he works hard.
