Change is a-comin’

I have hinted at this for a while, but my employment status has changed and thus will also be changing this blog. 

I have accepted a job offer from the Republican National Committee to serve as field representative for the Shenandoah Valley during the upcoming general election. In this capacity I will be responsible for motivating voters for the Republican ticket and mobilizing the grassroots volunteers to do so. Because of the nature of the job, I’ve decided to change the focus of this blog. In my capacity I’ll be doing alot of work in the field, and via the written word, photos, and video, I hope to bring you a glimpse of the campaign that is often underreported in the media–the grassroots. I won’t be commenting as much on issues of the day, the challenges our party faces, or on the “horse race” aspects of the primary campaigns. However, I do want to keep this blog up as a place for me to use during hiatuses as well as to provide a creative outlet for me during the campaign, so expect more book reviews and personal musings. I’ll also still try to bring you the big news from the Governor and Delegates races. For now, however, my focus is on electing our entire Republican team in the Valley, and I hope to bring you a unique perspective on that during the coming weeks and months. Don’t expect nearly as frequent posts, but I hope to bring you something at least once a week. 

Thanks to those of you who have spent a little bit of time reading my thoughts on politics, and particularly to those of you who have challenged me. I like to think I’ve demonstrated what can be done on a local level with a blog such as this and provided some pithy thoughts on the big picture issues along the way. 

Thanks again, and I’ll be seeing you on the trail.
