I like that you will not litter the city with ugly signs, thank you.

Glad it stayed up in here even if the mods took it off your signature.

I'm curious.

How do you market yourself and your campaign/policies to people who don't come on CNet or FB or other social media sites?

I am attending all of the All Candidates Meetings, I have been door knocking, plus I have a couple of volunteers door knocking. I am a member of Rotary so I attend all the different Rotary meetings in Kelowna to let them know I am running. I was a member of the Kelowna JC's and my wife was a member of the Okanagan JC's so we have been spreading the word through friends.

I am also hoping to get some endorsements by community groups. I am taking advantage of all the free media offerings. Plus I am working to generate as much media attention as I can. So far my tech platform has been picked up by Castanet and Accelerate Okanagan's website. I was interviewed about my no sign / social media approach by CBC radio the other day.

I have spent less than $400 to date and I'd guess that I have communicated to at least 30% of Kelowna voters by now. and most of them know more about me than just my name.

I also attend charity dinners and other local events. Having so many Facebook friends, I am constantly getting invited to events around town... now I have a great reason to go.

Great idea, Simon! I never realized how much time is spent running around fixing vandalized signs!

Personally I just dislike seeing the signs. This idea appeals to me.

The best thing about a digital sign, is that it can't get knocked down... :)




well, technically Jo can knock it down ;)
