So I have been getting a lot of requests for yard signs. Believe it or not, those can be a little expensive. The sign company I have been using had a price of $10 per sign with a minimum order of 50 signs. I said, “That is great, but I am under a very tight budget, so let me know if you have any ideas on how to cut the cost.” Living under a budget is actually a good thing. It forces one to prioritize and decide what is important. Something all politicians should do. It also helps create innovative ideas. Just like in this case. My sign company said, “If we go with a 12”x24” sign (instead of the standard 18”x24”), it will lower the cost even more.” Not only will it save me money, it will actually stand out from the rest of the political signs blighting the landscape. So, I have 50 signs coming and would like to get them on high traffic areas within the next week. If you feel you have an ideal location for a sign inside District 1, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will deliver it personally to your door. Thank you again for your continued support. This has been an amazing adventure and I can’t wait until November 8th.
So with the Beaverton Celebration parade over, the last parade of the campaign season is done. For all those who cheered for me while I walked with my friends and family, thank you. I had a lot of fun shaking hands and giving out candy. I don’t know if you noticed, but I always entered the parade as myself-Brian Heinrich for US Congress. My competitor’s campaign always joined in with her Party’s entry. I separated myself intentionally. You see, the job of a Congressional Representative is to represent the people of his or her district. Now it is true, I am the Republican nominee, but ultimately I am conservative. This means I believe we need limited government, lower taxes, more state rights and more individual liberty. With these basic principles in mind, that is how I intend to represent you. Now I have met the incumbent for my position, Suzanne Bonamici a couple of times. She seems like a very nice and genuine person. I think she has a good heart. Where I disagree with her is on two major policies. She is liberal, and believes in even more government involvement in our daily lives through the theft of our own tax dollars. She is also very political party oriented. She often votes party lines regardless of the needs and wants of the people of district 1. Her votes align very well with those of Nancy Pelosi’s. I prefer independent thinkers. I am one. My name is Brian Heinrich and I am going to be your next Representative for Oregon’s 1st Congressional District.
