5 Things I’ve Learned From This

The last six weeks or so have been extremely interesting, but I’m ready for the election so that, regardless of the results, I can at least move forward with a result. The biggest issue right now is having literally no idea what the voters of Cheshire County are going to do. I can’t help but notice that none of the Democrat houses that I drive past have Eli Rivera signs in the yard–they don’t have my signs, either, but even some Republicans who support me aren’t willing to put up my signs. It’s eerily similar to the 2016 presidential election, where Trump proved

Commit Heresy With Me

The state religion is powerful, isn’t it? Powerful enough that Our Moment PAC, which describes itself as being “committed to getting BIPOC and LGBTQ+ candidates into elected office” actually endorsed Democratic candidate Eli Rivera over me, the actual, literal LGBTQ+ candidate in the race.

They, like everyone else, don’t do their research. I hope the people who support Our Moment PAC understand that the PAC just declined to endorse a

Contagion, I Exhale You

I want to be angry. On Friday night, dozens to hundreds of my campaign signs vanished from around Cheshire County. The full scale of losses is still unknown, but I estimate that the theft cost me between $1000 and $1500 in signs. With Wells Fargo having closed my account (for reasons that have to do with Bitcoin, and not my campaign) and holding a substantial amount of money for another expected 30~ days, it’s difficult for me to reorder more. It’s not impossible, but difficult. So if you want to contribute to the campaign, the best place to do so is

A Challenger Appears

When I woke Monday morning, with a slate of interviews ahead of me, I found that I had a lot of messages. That has been going on for a few weeks, but these were actual personal messages, from friends and colleagues. They wanted to know, at 8:00 in the morning, if I’d seen the signs about writing in Earl Nelson. Although I have compelling reason to believe that the NHGOP and Cheshire County Republican Committee have conspired with Earl Nelson to do this (probably in violation of their bylaws, but I can’t be bothered to check), it’s only interesting to me for a
