I want to propose at our planning meeting Sunday introducing our campaign on the Joe Show (AM930 from noon to 1 pm weekdays) with a speaker from our campaign, and invite Jared Gardner who has been active with the Portland MYM campaign to share the mic. He is the one who originally designed the flyer that we modified and adopted. And he has been a public spokesman for their campaign. I've told him about this proposal (to find out if he would be agreeble if asked) and he responded enthusiastically. They have combined their MYM and Oregonians for a State Bank campaigns. My thought is that his input on the Portland experience would help the public understand the goals of our campaign better. More info on Portland available from these links.
I have 2 ideas that may be good campaign activities:
1) Chris Wolf has offered to give a presentation on her experience/adventure in frugal living and voluntary simplicity.
2) This new Transition related film is out, "the Economics of Happiness" and from the trailer it looks like a full-length film about localization and how that can improve one's standard of living. There is a premier of the movie in Seattle this Tuesday the 11th, would anyone want to go? But the idea is that we could incorporate it into our shindig.
