One campaign ends and…another begins! Yes, I am planning on running in 2014 and the campaigning is in its unofficial stages right now in 2013. I am continuing to learn about policy issues and to meet people in both Midland and Bay Counties. We are re-building our campaign team and planning our fundraising strategies as well as campaign strategies for late this year and early next year.
The 2014 campaign would not be possible without all of those who helped on the 2012 campaign – especially Victor Draine, my campaign manager (who is now working in Flint for Congressman Dan Kildee), Sara Clavez, who was my volunteer coordinator, Dave Brausch, who was our turf coordinator and all of the team, as well as all of those who contributed to the campaign and had signs in their yards – not to mention all of you who voted for me: 41,000 strong!
