Analyzing the last elections is critical to lay the ground work for the next election.
I know, the glitzy professionals in the party, for hire consultants, and Caucuses think they have a monopoly on advice, but they also don’t return phone calls to candidates they don’t think can win. I put together a presentation of 2010 Election Results to help spur local candidates and BPOUs to crunch their numbers to improve upon them the next time.
Only a fool gives away good ideas or the fruits of their labor. Hey, there’s a fool in that there mirror.
Most first time candidates don’t have a clue on how to get started or build a campaign. I was looking for something as simple as an Organizational Chart for Campaigns and couldn’t find anything out on those there intertubes. Surprise surprise, everyone charges for that sort of stuff….. Well, not me. But I do accept donations.
Here’s a sample of what some of the basics a local or beginning campaign should try to do.
I also made a Keynote presentation on the 2010 Minnesota election results and some tips for analyzing them for the next election.
Here’s the Presentation I gave to the CD4 Convention on March 26, 2011.
