I enrolled in the Institute to help better my campaign strategies. I am not a political person, but I have helped in several campaigns. By attending this Institute, I knew I would become aware of different aspects of the campaign process that may go unnoticed. I loved being able to network with others and gain insight to different techniques. I really enjoyed hearing from previous elected officials of their knowledge of running successful campaigns. I plan on implementing all the information I gained and the experience I received from the Institute into my own campaign for Jefferson County Tax Collector. I would like to give a huge thanks to Nancy McNew and the Alliance; Ryan Watley, you, Leigh Cockrum, and the rest of the GFPB Team for supporting and orchestrating this for us all. Thank you again.
