Campaign Update from Troy
My campaign for State Representative continues to make tremendous progress. Thank you for all of your support! As most of you know, I am a planner. Before publically announcing my run for this seat, I spent several months meeting with community leaders and political consultants to lay a solid plan for victory. I listened, learned, and then put wise counsel onto paper. When it was time to launch, I knew exactly what I wanted to accomplish each month through next November to win this election. I am incredibly happy to be executing on that solid plan now.
The first phase of our campaign plan was to get a plan on paper after meeting with leaders in the community, along with creating website content and building our initial campaign infrastructure. I met with numerous people about the district, worked tirelessly on the website, and built solid online infrastructure for supporters. Now you can read about the campaign, district, and also my life on this site. You can also sign up to volunteer and donate through the site. Beyond being engaging, the site allows the campaign to easily track and communicate with supporters. Phase 1 ran through April, 2017 and was a huge success!
Launching the campaign in May began the second phase of the campaign, which ran through June 30, 2017. It focused on fundraising. On May 8, I formally announced my candidacy for The Ohio House of Representatives for the 21st District, and we began work on multiple fundraisers in the month of June. Through planning, discipline, and focus, we were able to hold five fundraisers that month, including one in Cleveland. For those of you know the work that goes into calls, emails, organization, and venue planning for one event, pulling off five successful fundraisers in one month is a feat. Our planning paid off, as we raised nearly $70,000 including direct and in kind contributions. That might be a record. It would not have happened without significant support from over 200 people, including many of you! Phase 2 was a tremendous success too.
Phase 3 began in July and runs through the end of the year. This phase focuses on community outreach, a little more fundraising, and helping other candidates around the County. This phase is also coming along strong, with some minor tweaks to maximize success for a primary. If you live in the district and would like to learn more about how you can help, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don’t live in the district but want to help, there are a number of things you can do too! Please click "Volunteer" above to get added to our list.
I remain focused on our campaign and our plan, and continue to be incredibly pleased at the progress. I am not running against anyone, but instead I am focused on running for this seat. My goal is to run our game plan with a focus on sharing a positive message with voters. I want to show the voters of this district why I am the best candidate to elect to Ohio’s legislature. I will work hard, remain focused, and effectively communicate how I can help shape a better future for Ohio.
I sincerely appreciate your support in this endeavor and look forward to winning this race in 2018! If you would like to help me right now, the best way is to donate $50 to my campaign by clicking the Donate link above.
