Only $200 More for Mitchell South Dakota Ron Paul BillBoard!!Submitted by Skyorbit on Thu, 04/24/2008 - 23:29
We already have this board up in Yankton, Sioux Falls, Sturgis, Aberdeen, Watertown and Brookings.
Well, it looks like we're only going to raise enough money for 1 more BillBoard, so we decided to go with Mitchell. I know many people here were hoping for one in the Capital in Pierre, but Mitchell is on a main route. It's also a tourist town. (The Corn Palace is there.) Plus there's a new meet-up group that just started there, that's able to capitalize on it.
So, unless we get a few more big donars before the deadlines (Tomarrow Preferably. Monday at the very latest.) There won't be a BillBoard in Pierre.
If this disapoints you, then put a comment on your chip-in donation. If the rest of the $200 we get comments that they think Pierre is better, then we can reconsider. I'm disappointed we weren't able to get a board in both places myself :(
Every $650 buys a new BillBoard for a month in another strategic decent sized town.
I also would really like one around the Vermillion/Elk Point Area. But Mitchel and Pierre are definitely more important. Maybe somebody could help me put together a good ad to target these people in the local newspapers. :( Paul's "Free market environmentalist" approach is a message all these people need to here.
We still have a chance to get them all. We just need $650 x 2 is $1,300. Plus we need $200 more for Mitchel. Total, is $1,500 more.
But we have to hurry. We need to get the contracts signed, and the money before May 1st, if we're going to have them up for the month, before our June 3rd Primery.
