Our ‘on the ground’ campaign strategy continues… In the face of million dollar political advertising, we’re currently going with: “average Joe” fliers. Well, it could work… In Wheat Ridge, Colorado, I put up a flier on a bulletin board in King Sooper Grocery — right below a season schedule for the Mile High Grizzlies semi-pro football team. (Bulletin board placement is everything.) We then drove into downtown Arvada, Colorado, where I put a flier up on the community bulletin board on the square in the ‘Old Town’ area, then I walked about passing out more campaign literature… Then if was off to North Geffco Park in Arvada, where our Jonathan, 7, played in the sand at the playground with a group of kids and I passed out yet more campaign literature to some of the parents… Afterward we went to Shannon’s Thrift Store where the boys got a few used baseballs and I bought a couple second-hand pairs of socks. (Have I mentioned it’s a low budget campaign?) Note: Last evening at the Arvada YMCA, the coach of one of the teams there let our kids join in on a practice scrimmage. Liz and I ran the scoreboard clock. We all had an absolutely great time.
