My invitation to Campaign Managers/High ranking Staff

If we haven't made it clear yet, we are junkies. We love the political game. Frankly, we're more interested in the behind the scenes intricacies of each campaign than the name at the very top of the masthead... so, we wanted to extend an invitation to every campaign's manager, coordinator, or high level staff people.

We would like to interview you, give you a chance to speak about the campaign from the perspective of a political professional. On the record (although we would not object to an off-the-record portion as well), so we'll try to leave out questions that would seriously jeopardize the health and well-being of your campaigns. Our feeling is that it would provide a great opportunity for a whole lot of people who have never worked in politics to get a feel for what it is like to actually be "pulling the strings" and living a political campaign.

Obviously, this idea only works if the campaigns want it to work. Consider it an opportunity to talk about the race in a professional, not just political, context. It will be beneficial to the readers, as hopefully they will gather an impression of just how much goes into living the campaign operative lifestyle, and how much thought and planning goes into a political race. This invitation is open to every campaign, D and R, in the 13th district US House race, as well as any statewide candidate. Please email us at ohio13 at gmail dot com if your campaign is interested, and John will be happy to discuss specifics with you.

This won't be a "Meet the Bloggers" type of thing with full audio available, as we're neither wealthy nor tech-savvy enough to touch that. However, we have a plan to allow as much of the content to be available as possible (we will discuss with the campaigns as they make contact).

So, give a shout out and let us know if you are game. Especially the very many candidates who haven't approached us yet... here's your chance in a non-confrontational forum.

Tom Sawyer Delivers:

As a United States Congressman, Tom Sawyer proved a consistent and outstanding ability to bring back federal dollars for the communities he represented. He is keen on helping to create new economies and industries and jobs. As a member of the State Legislature, he has a distinguished record on a wide variety of issues, especially education and energy policies. Tom Sawyer won awards for fiscal responsibility when he was Akron Mayor, having set a new course for the City’s growth, balanced the budget without raising taxes, and restructed debt and fiscal reporting systems. Mr. Sawyer has proven that he knows how to bring community stakeholders together in ways that benefit not only the 13th District, but all of Ohio.

Please participate in the discussion at

It will be surprised if you get much traction from this.

So will I, but at least I like to keep up relationships with campaign teams... I've made contact, and had useful, off the record conversations with hi level staff from multiple campaigns... hoping to maybe see if there was any interest among them of opening the doors to the political kingdom for us hoi polloi to look in....

Did you happen to see the Paul S. Burtzlaff campaign brochure which just started hitting the households?

Nice subtle touch with the picture of Ronald Reagan in the background.
