This isn’t my first time running for Congress.

You’d think someone from the local, state, or DNC would reach out to me to find out about my campaign, or offer some resources?

Nope. Never happened.

At the shitshow of a local party meeting last week- the party, who puts people in high paying jobs running the board of elections- couldn’t even contact one of the candidates.

I guess it’s up to me to do it- and to set up a live debate among the candidates. That’s why I started Reconstructing Dayton, my 501c4 in the first place.

But- to do that- requires me to pay people to run the video board, man the cameras, and use the equipment I own that is optimized to do this. We’ve tried to do in depth interviews with other candidates in the past- during Covid- see some of our past candidate interviews on YouTube.

Today there was a big article on the front page of the Dayton Daily’s local section about 2 ill suited candidates for Chair of the Montgomery County Dem Party. No mention of the other 3 who’ve discussed running- and neither of them have presented a plan on how to reform the party. Trust that I do have a plan.

I found this article by a professor at the LBJ school of public policy informative and thought it should be required reading for all the folks trying to turn this country blue: How Democrats Can Become the National Majority Party
I hope you find it insightful.

If you haven’t made a donation yet- It would help us get the debates going, and help me start to do highly targeted advertising. My second video is in the edit bay right now. I’ll let you know when it’s done.

Please share this email- or my site- to like minded folks who’ve had enough of a Congressman who never meets with his constituents.
