Campaign on hold until 2010

by Doug on July 3, 2009

With the loss of the Contribution Refund Program (just one of the casualties of Gov. Pawlenty’s Unallotment) I have decided to put my campaign on hold until 2012.

The is disappointing and frustrating, I have spent the last year building my campaign around including thousands of people in my campaign through small donations. I will now have to look to structure a different kind of organization that will go after fewer and larger contributions because of the loss of the CRP.

I do want to be clear, this does not mean that I am stopping my effort of Creating the Common Good through SMART government, but it does mean that as far as electoral efforts go I will not be running in 2010.

Stay tuned and I will bring updates when they are pertinent.
