Razzeto: Lessons On Campaign Trail

On her Facebook wall, Liese Razzeto of the Kootenai Health Board posted recently: It has been quite a week, and those of you who know me, know how un-political I am and how foreign this is to me. I am making every campaign mistake possible, but still hanging in there.

  • Who knew that when you mail 975 campaign post cards to chase absentee ballots, when you go to the post office and buy stamps, there are different postage requirements for different sizes of post cards, and if you don't get the right ones, the post cards may be delivered “postage due”?
  • Who knew when you open a PayPal account for campaign donations, and you hit the wrong drop down box, your account can be opened in Cypress and they will block funds until you can show you are in America?
  • Who knew that when you order yard signs, you have to order the stakes seperately and put them together?

Question: Is there a lesson that you've learned while campaigning as a candidate or as part of another's campaign that you'd like to share with Hucks Nation?
