  1. I agree. In addition to all the benefits and skills that we would bring to the campaign table, we also could do it frugally. The amount of money spent on campaigns is insane. I know that when I hear that someone has raised a million dollars, I immediately think of all the local organizations that struggle each month to keep the lights on.

    • There are certainly elections that I’ve thought have been real bargains, though, Lesa, when we get someone great in office, but I definitely agree that there are high-touch, low-tech ways to connect with voters that we often overlook. And, of course, that there is entirely too much money in politics, but that’s a structural issue, since I certainly don’t want *my*candidates to be the first ones to cry “uncle”!

  2. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an extremely long
    comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not
    writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to
    say great blog!
