This week I attended my local Democratic Party meeting, where we heard from our local candidates, discussed the upcoming opening of our 2012 campaign office, and welcomed two new members. I also began teaching our members some of the values-based messaging points from Project New Florida and the Florida Democratic Party, as well as Chip and Dan Heath’s SUCCES sticky idea checklist and the story of Shady Eddie to illustrate how the roots of the Great Recession lay in GOP policies that favored billionaires and big corporations, while Democrats work to protect hard-working American families. It was a productive and energetic meeting, and we’re ready to work to help President Obama, Senator Bill Nelson, and our local Democratic candidates turn Florida blue in November.
