I have a good story

When I was canvassing a neighborhood while running for Mayor this past month, I had a citizen tell me that she wished more young people like me would get involved in politics and in their community. I agreed. I told her Barack Obama inspired me to run for office and serve my community.

I'm running for State Assembly now because I lost the mayoral race but I wish we could get more young people involved across the country.

2. Good on you, and good luck!

I do hope more young people get involved. And not just at the top of the ticket but all the way down the ballot to assemblyman and dog catcher!

4. The little people

 

I will never, never, never forget the little people. I call them the voiceless. The ones that are not getting heard.

I posted a thread about this but here is a link to my campaign website: http://www.asherforwisconsin.com.

Feel free to check it out. Sign up to support my campaign if you believe in my message.

Thanks for all of your support and love. UNITED AS ONE!

5. My messages always get hidden...

 

I find it odd that everytime I post, my threads are shot down.

Is it hard to believe that a young person like myself is running for office? Yes, I'm 18!!

It's in the media. I have to, by law, file reports to account for donations.

Google my name!! Doing something positive but yet I should get banned from here? Disappointing to say the least.

8. Try again without soliciting for funds as that may have been the issue. And...

Did Skinner give you the ok to be back again?

Good luck running.

Had said that I should be okay since I've matured a little since 2007.

10. That is good. In which case, maybe try reposting your contact info, without soliciting for money?

Also, DU3 has a Help/Meta forum to ask questions and get feedback more directly. http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1240

19. Well, it looks great! But shouldn't you be on the front page?

Or is that you in the yellow hoodie? If so, can't see your face! I saw you on the "Meet Asher" page, though. Handsome young man. Good serious look there.

Yeah, that's me. A photographer took that photo. It's me in yellow and the current mayor to the far right. Thank you very much!

12. Agreed.

Higher unemployment in their demographic may spur more interest in running.
