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.

  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
