Bill continued, “I know that during the campaign there was a lot of talk about the money was spent on media, we knocked on 15,000 doors and then we touched another 15,000 residents in the district with our literature.” Our campaign worked the fairs and festivals, meeting the voters … There was a lot of ‘retail’ campaigning as well as media campaigning.”
