Inside Lehigh Valley Politics
The picture and caption on my campaign page was intentionally very simple and direct. I needed help. You needed to participate in democracy, beyond just voting, to help foster change; Otherwise, there may be less choice inside the voting booth than you realize. Our incumbent representatives, from both parties, have more in common than that which separates them. Neither party was capable of making meaningful changes to the state's morass, or even passing a budget. New candidates seek the endorsement from existing candidates, holding different offices, as if their recommendation should mean anything. The caption with the photograph said only, I need your help to fight for us in Harrisburg. Help me get signatures to be on the ballot. Registered Republicans call me at 610 XXX-XXXX or email me, XXX@XXX.com
While a limited number of people contacted me offering their help, numerous people "liked" the photo. Now, I understand adult coloring books; People like pictures and government which require little to no work on their part.
