I recently got unquestionably involved in a nearby campaign for neighborhood mayor.
I helped with calling up voters & print materials.
I suddenly was in charge of having signs printed & getting permission to set them up all around the community. Every one of us hoped to have our signs strategically sited in places for optimum impact & visibility. Every one of us needed signs that people who hastily go out and notice them & unquestionably read. Every one of us hoped to present our candidate in the very best possible light. I started by taking pictures of our candidate. I discovered right away that she doesn’t photograph well! Getting a flattering picture where she looked honest, but still approachable & yet dignified was difficult. I spent various minutes taking photos in weird outfits, poses & locations. Every one of us also needed to somehow come up with a campaign slogan, choose colors & determine a font for all of the necessary print materials. The whole process was severely time-consuming plus ultra annoying. There were lots of fights over crazy details among our group of volunteers. I then went back and started consulting with a print business to make sure the signs would be the proper size for us & hold up to our local weather. I was also working from a fairly limited budget. I hoped to eventually be able to afford as many signs as possible, which meant sacrificing a bit of quality for the project. I worried about the timeline of receiving the materials. It was severely substantial to successfully get our signs up as soon as possible. Every one of us actually didn’t want the local opponent to have her signs up before ours. When the print materials finally arrived, it was a complete disaster. They had misspelled our candidate’s name, because of that, but they rushed the order of the brand new signs & significantly reduced the price.
