  • Every campaign is basically a machine designed to connect with voters and convince them you are the candidate/party to lead.But there is growing frustration that many elections and campaigns are delivering the same old same old.Most of accept that good governance and fiscal management is a given. The nuances are defined via values. But only a few in the public care what good tax design is about. (and you just need to have the Canadian Taxpayers Federation show up and they oppose everything).The public is looking for something that captures their imagination. They want to vote FOR something.Hence the best machinery is the one who grasp that each election requires the discipline of a start up with an IPO on election day. Within the dynamic environment of online and real-life, it is about learning the common objective, brand elements and measuring return on engagement.And part of the trick is to attract individuals who can operate in this environment.
