YER OUT! Candidates needed
My state senator and state rep both voted for the new stadium, even though there are higher priorities like education, health care, property taxes, transportation and the environment that need the money more. Are we going to let them get away with this? I’m calling on ordinary citizens from all over the state to step up to the plate and eject these bums from the political ballgame.
Unfortunately, they're making it harder for minor parties to get on the ballot. You need 500 signatures for state house and 1000 for state senate, they need to list their legislative district, and there's something like a two-week window to collect them all. Your map has to be very detailed so they can be certain they live in the district. You might be better off going house to house, twice: Once to find out who is willing to sign, and once to get the actual signatures.
The good news is I bet you could get a lot of mileage out of the stadium issue. Just keep hammering the stadium issue over and over and over again. I bet you could even say you agree with the incumbent on all other issues! I'm a state employee so I can't run this year, but I will be eternally grateful to anyone who does.
