I actu­al­ly enjoy work­ing with politi­cians. It’s fun­ny how every­thing is an emer­gency, but then when there are no emer­gen­cies any­more every­body seems dis­ap­point­ed…

This site was a cus­tom job where I pret­ty much had the run of the show on design. It was fea­tures they were after. Once again, this is Word­Press (seems like it’s been a while since I’ve done one that isn’t), and uses a “mag­a­zine style” theme. The slid­er box is a cus­tom job (based on contentslider.js) that pulls from four pre­de­ter­mined cat­e­gories. We got a lit­tle mem­ber­ship / con­ti­nu­ity soft­ware in there (Wish­list Mem­ber), some SMS text mes­sag­ing and a wicked auto-respon­der / mail­ing list man­ag­er.

The mem­ber­ship soft­ware is specif­i­cal­ly for man­ag­ing the vol­un­teers and staff who help with the cam­paign. It’s a nov­el approach to the idea of con­ti­nu­ity, but it works very well. The place where this site shines is the back­end. Too bad most peo­ple will nev­er get to see it.

  1. Every­thing does seem like an emer­gency with polit­i­cans. Isn’t that sad?

    Not sad… It’s actu­al­ly more fun that way.

  2. Aaron,
    The site rocks, the back office is awsom we are learn­ing some­thing new every day. I even added my vot­er access data base to the google doc’s, and set up my google reminders. We are work­ing on cre­at­ing our door knock­ing data base in excel, the vol­un­teer cap­ture and the pay pal links work like a charm. I am even adding my can­di­date ques­tion­airs to the edi­to­r­i­al sec­tions.
    Many thanks
