|Drake and Eric at work developing campaign strategy|
State Representative District #1.
Now that the papers are filed, "Farmers for Eric" is registered with the DCCA and the Campaign Spending Commission, a TIN (taxpayer identification number) is recorded with the IRS, a bank account is opened, we are ready to get to work.
Our theme is "Growing Community Together". We want the campaign and the web site to be the example of our vision for District One. Drake is my Campaign Manager and Web Master. It is great for father and son to be working together, discussing what elements to include in the web site to best accomplish our goal. We agree that a map of District #1 is important. We want a place where leaders and those involved in building and growing our community can share their vision for our District. We want an interactive site, one where folks come to be connected. To that end, we want to have a place where farmers can post what they grow, how they farm, and how they sell their farm products. We will have an events calendar. We plan to host campaign events that plant gardens and share locally grown food.
