2. I'm inexperienced

3. I'm obviously not a part of the system so I truly do seek to represent the people, not some corporation.

Sorry Matt

All I heard was "do good" and everything else you said was lost. That's what every politician has promised, forever. What specifically is your brand of "do good?"

Matt, hope you read this.

First, go to your council's website and find out if they implemented Local Agenda 21 aka 'sustainable development' programs and make a part of your platform the abolition of those policies - they're wasteful and unnecessary and no local govt should be taking its marching orders form the UN. Also, read the by-laws and everything about what the council does and how it works. Then start knocking on the doors of your neighbors and branch out from there. Let them know you're running for council and ask THEM what they feel needs to be done in the community and what the council is doing that they want stopped - offer some stuff from what you learned on the council website about council that you see needs fixing. If you know what the constituency wants and doesn't want you can then tailor part of your platform accordingly. Find out what perks the councillors get and say you'll accept none of them and get as many of them as you can eliminated and want the people to help you achieve that. After you know all this, then go out with your flyer and talk to people again, this time saying what YOU want to do, what you see as the 'problem' then offer your ideas on how to correct it. Let them that your an ideas and solution finding guy. I knew someone who just printed off a flyer from their pc and stuffed mailboxes with them - let people know you're serious about keeping costs down and fancy pamphlets are a waste of money. I remember years ago driving through Cheyenne, WY and there was a handmade poster on a fence ouside a house that said: "Vote for me for Mayor". I loved it!
Good luck!

He said he knows what he will do if elected,

then suggests he would say whatever necessary to get elected. That's just more of the same.
My suggestion would be to educate your constituency on those things about which you are passionate. Teach them that we have to do x because... People know when they hear the truth, and they respond.
As an example, the largest impediment today to reducing run-away fedguv is city and county lust of federal dollars. We, at the local level, must learn to do without federal dollars. We have to be the adults in the room, or we will lose our republic for good. Taking such a stance will surely go against the establishment, but it will make sense to the voters.

I listened and did not hear him say the

suggestion you specify in your first sentence.

to Matt, your age should appeal to some who could help you locally; it is clear you are energized and articulate and could attract support. I hope you can find mentors who know the local dynamics and will assist you.

"I know what my personal beliefs are and how I would vote as a

councilman, I just need to know how the heck to get in there." (about the 1 minute mark).
I was just trying to point out there is no point of separation between "beliefs" (translate: objectives) and how to get elected.

Undo what Wilson did

Which part

that he wanted advice or that the grassroots help him out? Cause I just suggested that the grassroots help him out.

Apparently I misunderstood your point indicating

he'd say anything to get elected. I see now your were suggesting that he educates just as Dr. Paul does. I did not hear Matt disagree with this honest strategy. thanks for helping clarify.


problem and sorry if my words seemed condescending I didn't mean to come off like that.

This belongs on the front page, everyone follow his lead and run for City Council.

At the local level, the key is to go walk and meet every single person in your town. You can EASILY go walk to every single house and give them your pitch. The voters want to meet you. If its anything like my town, just meeting voters makes them like you.

If there is a vacancy

when the new term begins, you can be appointed on the Central Committee.

Just make sure you attend the monthly meetings and get to know the people.
