Around $1000 was spent on my 2000 campaign. (I still have most of the campaign materials purchased still useable.) I do not owe any favors to lobbyists for campaign contributions. All of my campaign money comes from citizens who can legally vote for me in the election.

Looking back from the perspective of 2007 I could see the misguided idea that a campaign can win without money. A minimum of $80,000 will be needed in 2012 to make a reasonably good showing in the November 06, 2012 general election. I will make every effort to get on the ballot, if just to have another choice on the ballot in opposition to the two candidates of the bipartisan incumbent dictatorship. That alone is a worthy goal.

Some one-time print ads were bought in City Beat, The Cincinnati Herald, and a west side weekly owned by a Democrat. The total estimated ad circulation was 85,000, which might have been seen by some voters. Not a lot of exposure, but I know, from being at the polls on election day, of several votes which came from the ad. My decision to try to be on the ballot in 2002 came in great part from the very positive response of voters at the polls. 80% of the people I talked to voted for me. My votes were from all segments of our population. Voters want to have candidates they can believe in to represent them. I have the integrity they seek.

During the 2000 campaign, a few voters gave me $25 to $27 and they were my top contributors. My 2004 campaign will be run on the same basis. I hope to get $1 to $5 from enough District One voters to get $50,000 for print and broadcast ads. I want to get over 34% of the vote, not just one-percent (1-%) as in the 2000 general election. In a three-candidate election, over 34% of the vote 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 count for you and all the people of District One.

I did not get enough valid petition signatures to get on the ballot as an independent candidate in 2002. Not enough people to help and poor follow-up with the people who had petitions to circulate. I learned a lot from that failure. Follow-up and communication with campaign workers is very necessary.

I learned a lot in the 2000 election, that some money is needed to create awareness that a worthwhile candidate exists. I will make a much greater effort in 2004 to raise campaign money, minimum $50,000. We need to trust our political system again. I hope to be part of that renewed trust. I hope to be elected as part of the 2004 Independent Voter Revolution for good government.

Below is a brief idea of my inadequate funding goals for 2000:
October 15, 2000 - $115, $885 short of goal at deadline.
October 9, 2000 - $104, $896 short of $1000 goal.

October 1, 2000 - $71 and a negative balance of expenses incurred but not presented to the campaign to date by the candidate. Candidate expects to loan the campaign up to $1000. The entire campaign "Warchest" is $71.

April 2000 - Open "Citizens for Stevenson" account with $70 - two $25 contributions, two $5 contributions, and one $10 contribution.

Goal: $1000 in $1 or $5 contributions from District One voters by October 15, 2000.

Going in to October 2000 I have 1000 thirty page pamphlets ($430), The Overdue Voter Revolution, and 6,000 one-third-page flyers ($40) to hand out in my handshaking campaign. If you support my issues, make your contribution of $1 or $5 to Citizens for Stevenson. Make a contribution of a dollar or two in exchange for my pamphlet, which deals with basic reforms needed. I would like to have $500 to buy print ads in small newspapers and $200 to buy radio spots.

Modest efforts are all I anticipate. I depend upon my campaign and political web sites to educate voters about my candidacy. I need you to broadcast my web sites by e-mail to your friends and family to give them the opportunity to consider a vote for RICH STEVENSON. I also depend upon you to hand out flyers to District One voters you know and ask them for their vote for "RICH" who will represent their interests in congress. Thank you for your efforts.

I Pledge to be Self Term-Limited to Two Terms in Office: Four Years



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.
