You can put that notion to rest as once again, a conservative steps up and shows his liberal opponent how it should be done.
Bill Cismar, candidate for the 40th Legislative District Position 1, running against liberal Democrat Jim Jacks, famous for admitting he had no ideas on how the “fix the tax system” in Washington State, has announced on his facebook page,
“I am so conservative, I don’t want to spend donor money on what many people consider to be eyesores cluttering up our beautiful City. SIGNS!
Please go to my signage selection, bottom left of this page, select your favorite sign, then print it out and hang it in your windows. If you set your printer to print in Landscape you’ll get a v…very nice 8×11 sign!
Home made signs in folk’s cars and living room windows rule!”
We all complain about campaign signs littering the county, being vandalized, eyesores and candidates end up leaving them after the election because, quite frankly, they have no idea where supporters place them all.
Signs cost a lot of money to have made and as Bill sees, that precious money donated from supporters during these depressing economic times, is hard to come by. Unlike Democrat candidates, conservatives cannot rely on powerful unions, lobbyists and special interests to keep the coffers full. We have to depend on supporters, the very people who are now suffering due to Democrat policies from the stat and federal level.
Bill goes on to say,
“I will use the donors money for mailers, phone calls, fliers, perhaps radio ads, and so forth. And yes, I’ll even put up a few signs at strategic locations. The money won’t be wasted and the law doesn’t let me use it for any other purpose besides what it is given for.”
“There will be plenty of signs. I’m just not going to go to the stage of littering the city with them. Yes there is a need to make one’s name familiar. But two things are facts that dramatically affect the signage strategy.”
1- The sign has to capture the attention of the audience. Look around at the sign clutter we have. You can’t possibly read all the signs at most of our major cross streets.
2 – The sign must not offend. Ask anyone you know what their emotional response is when they see all these campaign signs.”
Bill Cismar is giving a prime example of how he will represent us in Olympia. Responsibly!
Even though opponents will inevitably come to say that he is not thinking of the environment in this, which is somewhat correct, conservatives just do it. They don’t make a fuss about just how much they do, they just do it! It’s our responsible nature and Bill Cismar is showing that now.
With precious funds to work with, Bill is also showing how he will be responsible with precious and decreasing tax revenues. As I said, conservatives just do it!
Driving around the county, it is difficult to pass through an intersection and not see Jim Jacks signs littering everywhere the eye can see. His campaign obviously is less worried about precious funds and creating eyesores everywhere than with ensuring he buys his way back to the legislature.
Then again, he is a Democrat and has unions and special interests to rely on, those same ones that continue to push to take more of our hard-earned money away from us in increased taxes.
Bill Cismar is a regular guy with a great resume’. He is not an experienced politician, nor a career politician. He is one of us who has seen enough and knows the value of a hard earned dollar.
Bill’s announcement on signage may seem like a small gesture, but it speaks tons about the man and how responsible he will be as our next legislator representing the 49th Legislative District, pos. 1.
It is high time we conservatives stand up and show that in spite of the false claims all these years, we are the responsible ones.
We have two excellent conservative candidates prepared to show the “conservatives just do it” attitude in Olympia.
Bill Cismar, position 1 against Jim Jacks.
And Craig Riley, position 2 against Jim ‘Da Taxman’ Moeller.
Let’s elect them both and pull ourselves out of this economic morass we find ourselves in today.
