The campaign is in full swing and things are going great. I spent the long weekend volunteering at the Decatur Book Festival and going door-to-door in Winnona Park and Oakhurst where I met new friends and was able to catch up with old ones. A special “thank you” to John Cushnie, Mike Travis and Madsen (yes – Madsen wanted to campaign with me!) for keeping me company as I knocked on doors of nearly 100 houses. One WPES mother stated she was excited about electing “new blood” to the City Commission. Another 50 year Decatur resident, commented that he was excited that the “next generation of community servants” was stepping up to “lead the City”.
Over the next few weeks, I will continue my door-to-door campaigning in addition to attending the following events:
- Monday, September 21 – City Commission Meeting
- Tuesday, September 22 – DBA Meeting
- Tuesday, September 22 – Winnona Park Neighborhood Association Meeting
- Wednesday, September 23 – Zoning Board Meeting
- Thursday, September 24 – DEF Boil & Brew Patron Sponsor Party
As always, I hope to see some of you at these events. I also encourage you to invite your Decatur neighbors as well – to meet me and other members of the community, and to learn more about the many activities impacting the city.
Some of you have asked how you can help the campaign and here are some ideas:
- Make sure you, your family and friends are registered to vote by October 1, 2015 (See instructions on registering at the bottom of my website – www.brianfordecatur.com)
- Email me and let me know I can place a campaign sign in your yard from 9/22 through 11/3
- Email me and let me know you could host causal candidate gathering so I can meet your friends and neighbors
- Publicly endorse me on my website (see bottom of my website for instructions)
As you likely know, the election is November 3rd and we do have competition. If you wish to contribute, please mail donations to Friends of Brian Smith for Decatur, 530 Oakview Road, Decatur GA 30030 or donate online at https://politics.raisethemoney.com/bsmith.
I am humbled by the support that I have received so far, so truly thank you!
