Last week I sent out the following message (in part) to folks on my 'contact list' and asked them to re-send to others in St Albert. The response from both this and the 'contact Al' opportunity on this webpage has been OUTSTANDING! So much so, that I run the risk of running out of signs before election day. 

"The rules allow for election signs to be placed starting on Sept 18. They must be removed by Oct 18. I have always been unimpressed with the visual blight of election signs along our roadways and the associated environmental waste. But, I have been educated that name recognition thru such signs is critical. 

The way I’m trying to mitigate this is by minimizing the number of signs ordered, and by placing them on private property (where vandalism is also somewhat reduced) instead of along our roadways. I’m also expecting that a form of ‘endorsement’ is implied when the signs relate to a household, as opposed to being on the side of the road. I can certainly use this kind of community support.

My preference would be to have all my small election signs posted on SA front lawns, as the most effective way of ensuring the ‘name recognition’ factor. If you are able to host a lawn sign, please just reply with your name, email and the street address. My volunteer team will drive by and install the signs as they have time."


If you don't see any (or many) of my little signs along the roadways in SA, my strategy will have been successful!  

I still have some left. If you wish to help my cause, please continue to volunteer for hosting a sign. When I do run out, I'll post here for all to know.

Thank you all so much!

You really are an inspiration to everyone. Keep on educating everyone through your own words. I believe that you'll going to be part of something big. That's why I think this is really a great start for you to influence people. Having a blog is also a great platform to reach a much larger audience and I think you're really determined to do this. Good luck and I wish you all the best!

Winning in an election is laborious and expensive. Every person who runs for a position have distinct strategies to win the election they are participating. Some people print a lot of publicity materials and distribute it to the public. By doing this, it increases the win rate of a person in an election. Other people go house to house and creating public announcements. In that public announcements they state their future plans and advocacies.
