2012 Money Raising Goals:During the 2000 campaign, a few voters gave $25 to $27 and they were my top contributors. My 2012 campaign will use PayPal to get $1 micropayments one at a time. The goal is to raise $9,000. The campaign will raise an additional $90,000 to mail postcards to OH1 voters, and for a few print ads and radio ads. For example, an ad in City Beat would cost up to $2665 for thirty weekly ads leading up to election day. Research on other ad costs in print media, radio, TV, and billboards have been completed. At this point placement of TV ads seems unlikely.
Townhall Politics: A lot of the campaign will be based on 120,000 flyers, and asking for the vote of voters face to face on Election Day. Direct democracy campaign participants, at the polls on Election Day, and Lit Drop Activities in neighborhoods and parking lots, will be be a large part of campaign efforts.
I want to get over 34% of the vote, not just one-percent (1-%) as in the 2000 general election. In a four-candidate election, just 4 out of 10 votes is very likely to win the election. I want to represent you in the U.S. Congress. I pledge to make every vote I cast in the U.S. Congress count for you and for every living person in Ohio District One.
Participate: Can you contribute 2 or 3 hours on Election Day to hand a flyer to each voter who comes to vote on Election Day. We can win with just 4 out of 10 votes. Top of Page

RICH STEVENSON, email@example.com
To preserve freedom and our democratic republic we must elect new people to public office, as often as possible, and with as many newly elected private citizens as possible.
Elect "Rich." You win. We all win. Rich is on your ballot for OH District One Representative to the U.S. Congress on November 06, 2012. Your non-partisan voice will be heard in the U.S. Congress.
Elect non-partisan independent candidates on your ballot. We all win if you apply term limits in the voting booth to all Incumbent public office holders. Career politicians do harm to our dreams of freedom and a democratic republic. As the years pass, incumbent politicians serve only their political party and other special interests that support their personal political ambitions.
