The best politicians connect with voters on emotional issues that affect their everyday lives. Such folks would do well to consider a new campaign launched earlier today.
No More Potholes may be an idea whose time has come. With oil prices rising and a long, cold winter coming to an end, it seems the perfect time to launch a campaign to change the way Denver's roads are constructed. And with the elections just around the corner, this issue will surely resonate with voters.
The full story of this launch is found at the Denver Business Journal, entitled "Campaign Begins For Concrete Roads."
Unsurprisingly, the campaign is led by concrete manufacturers, with a slick website and billboards around town to help stir the masses.
