December 2005 Club Report

What Have I Been Doing?
There has been no Clublog posting since the webmaster and I set up because I have been very, very busy. On Nov. 4, 2005, I was asked by Jeff Tyberg, of Grantsburg, WI, to be a consultant for the Wisconsin 7th U.S. Congress District race against 36-year incumbent David Obey (D-Wausau).
The website that was up and running on in November impressed Jeff Tyberg and his advisor, Richard A. Hess. They particularly liked how the Club values began with “family” and went on to “community” as the building blocks of civilization. I also presented to them The Cepia Club’s Manual Series: Part I–Beginning A Campaign. It looks as though my experience working for the Libertarian Party’s causes for 13-years is credible with a viable candidate for Federal office. That was both encouraging and pleasing. It wasn’t a waste!
For the past two weeks I have been working even more closely with the Tyberg Campaign in the role of Communications Director. It is a role that I described in snippets to Jeff and Rich from portions of part two of the manual series. That manual series part on the Communications Director and Communication Strategy will be formally presented to the campaign on Dec. 8th (two days from now). I have also been working closely with the campaign on creating and bidding a fund raising-centric mailing pamphlet.

Club Public Relations Report
I’m debating on when and if to do a press release announcing that we had a good start in business this year of 2005. Although we only operated for short of 6 months, there was much done to increase our credibility and build support for our mission. Many of the people who know me well have responded with help, advice, and moral support. Their reaction to the things we have done so far are very encouraging. Even the strangers whose feedback I hear in indirect loops (people are talking about it without knowing me) say that we know from hence we speak and are doing something worthy. Remember–the focus of this business is service to “community ending public ignorance and apathy.” The theory on international libertarianism to which I have alluded in writings and talked about with numerous people is seen as a peaceful approach for solving international conflicts and providing security for the United States and its citizens.
Related to Club P.R., I have filled in 85% of the fields for the Cepia Region I Media Database. Cepia Region I covers the old St. Croix Valley Liberty operating area of west-central Wisconsin, which includes the Twin Cities, Minnesota daily media, because I have some reputation here with the press and public from years of public relations activity on behalf of the Libertarian Party. It is from this area that our Club P.R. and operations will spread beyond our humble origins. The next step is to complete the CR II and III media databases for use in the Tyberg Campaign. The second and third regions will divide the northwest-north corner of Wisconsin and the southeast-south section. Added up they will cover the all the media outlets for the 7th Congress District.

I am trying to get the promised inaugural issue of Strategy Gazette newsletter ready for publication by the end of this month (Dec. 2005). I do have to issue the final edition of the SCV Liberty Beacon as the SCVL members voted to terminate the local LP committee which publishes the newsletter. There was a lot of favorable reaction to issues 1 and 2 of the Freedom-zine America. I have yet to decide on the frequency of the zine. Will it be a regular monthly or two or three week publication or published when there is need for it? The last zine was printed and distributed in late October. I have had the articles and graphics ready for Issue # 3 for a month. One thing I can’t do, however, is commit to do anything which I will not have time to carry out as promised. There is plenty to do the rest of December and I have a new year for which to plan.

Till later,
