May 17, 2011 — The Libertarian Party of Ohio is pleased to announce that LP member Todd Grayson has been appointed to the city council of Perrysburg, OH (in NW Ohio, near Toledo). He will be sworn in on Tuesday, May 31.
“The LPO is very proud of him”, said Kevin J. Knedler, LPO Executive Committee Chair. “Grayson is one of the many new members of the Libertarian Party of Ohio; and he currently serves the LPO as its Communication Director.” Individuals may contact him via email: <Todd.Grayson@lpo.org>.
I am filling a seat vacated by Joe Rutherford, who took a job with ODOT near Columbus recently. This seat is up for election this fall, so hopefully I will hold onto it through the election.
Playing nice-nice with the R’s and D’s is a good idea. I made friends in high places, and then when I needed endorsements, support, introductions, donors, and a critical appointment, it was all there for me. I’m getting to be a known commodity in a town of 20,000 people. It doesn’t make me special or important, and it’s not that hard to do. This is the path. This is the way. This is how we are going to get people elected. NETWORKING in real life groups and situations.
Join the Chamber of Commerce, go to City Council meetings, volunteer for city positions, and be visible in general.
This is political strategy 101.
