30 Minus 2 Days of Writing: The Mayor (10/28)

Feb 10

This theme has been really messing with me since I first saw it.

No idea, seriously.

I mean, I’ve dealt with some idiot mayors and ones I’d love to talk about how inept and stupid they were. That and how they were sneaky and gutless weasels who teamed up with others to do bad things.

But karma will hopefully eventually get them, if it hasn’t already. Karma loves spineless people.

Alas, I was looking for something more. I didn’t know any “mayor” songs or anything like that.

I could have researched the history of mayors, but that seems like a time-consuming project  that might bore me to tears.

So I went searching and what I came up with was this really excellent video made by a mayoral candidate in Florida.

This was in 2011.

Sadly, this gent didn’t win. Alas, his official website has this at the top:

We got an impressive 30% of the vote on election day! Thank you to everyone who supported me. We will build on our momentum and run again in 2013!

Maybe his chance will truly come in 2013.

Below are some of his election videos. Very clever. Using some pop culture and things to maybe aim toward a younger population. I’d have been interested to see more about his stand, if I was in his area.

Take a peek at the videos. Pretty good and an interesting way to go with the campaign.

If I ever run for mayor anywhere, I hope I could be this clever. It’s no wonder he got 30 percent of the vote. I’ll be interested to see how his 2013 campaign goes!

  2. Hah! Very clever way to reach the young voter, and a great post given the difficult prompt. ;) Now, I’d vote for this guy just because the ladies in his videos are seriously hot.

  3. I’d vote for him just because I am so sick of “normal” politics! Plus, as Ziva mentions, those women are smokin!

  4. This was a difficult topic which is part of the reason mine was late today. Didn’t get it finished before church. I ended up doing some history on the mayors of Winston-Salem. I’ll be back a little later to watch the videos.

    • I agree that it was a difficult topic. I’m glad I came across this guy or I would have been totally screwed!

  5. Those are pretty awesome, very clever campaigns. I actually wish I could vote for him! :-)

  7. Holy COW! I would SO vote for him after these… I hate politics… it would serve all the politicians right!

    • Going against the traditional politics is the way to go, sometimes. Maybe he’ll be luckier if he runs this year.

  8. I’m right there with you. Some of these prompts are killing me. “The Mayor”? Are you kidding me? What’s next, “Agricultural Reform”?

    I would have totally voted for that Florida mayoral candidate if I lived in his city.
