I recently got a cold call out of the blue from a NYS Assembly person, asking to set up a meeting.  Turns out, they are looking to help find someone to run against my town supervisor as well as my county legislator.  I'm currently on my town's board of fire commissioners and dabble in republican activities in my county.  I've decided to run for the county seat, but I've never "run" a campaign.  It'll be a primary in June against an incumbent of about 20 years.  The assembly person promised assistance from their office, but I'm interested in looking for a company that might provide services for a campaign.  Social media, print media, signs, petitions, etc.  There is one local company that I got a quote from but I'm interested to see if there are any other similar companies across the state.  Google hasn't been very helpful.

Turnout for primaries is always very low.  Get the voter list from the BOE and send a GOTV postcard to the active & inactive Republicans in the district.  You can use VistaPrint and Build A Sign.

On the petition grind!  An online petitioning system would make running for a local office much easier for working families.  Working weekends, I'm only able to get out and see people and get signatures from like 5p-7p.  Thankfully, I have the next 2 weekends off and should be able to get my required numbers.

My palm/rack cards are in!  This weekend and next weekend will be big for petitioning.  That said, any registered Republicans in the Jefferson county (northern) area that are interested in helping would be welcome!  I need volunteers that would be willing to take a stack of cards, petition sheets, and a list of Republican voters and start knocking on doors.  Let me know if anyone is interested.

Order the county voter list from the BOE website.

Campaign is going well.  I'm getting out with palm cards and yard signs just about every day and evening that I can.  Can't believe the amount of people that don't know who their representative is, much less have met/spoke with them.  Pushing hard to the primary in June.  

Switched over my facebook to a business page instead of a profile.  Would appreciate any likes and follows!  Thanks!

We drove thru your district on the way to Chateaugay a couple weekends ago.    Will have to say hi next time we're in the area.

Seems like every waking moment I've had not working or taking care of the farm, I've been out knocking on doors and meeting people.  Getting really good reactions and people seem to appreciate the visits.
