I was able to get some leeway for the remainder of this week from doing work because I informed my campaign some other responsibilities that I have committed to, and they were very understanding of my situation. I didn’t see it to be an issue either considering there are a numerous amount of students involved with the campaign. I haven’t gotten too much face time with other students a part of the campaign on the U of M campus, but there is still some time until the August 7th primary to introduce myself. Most of the people associated with my campaign are unpaid, so there isn’t much of a distinction there, but I have noticed that people who hold more leadership positions in the campaign have more of a passion and feel for the campaign compared to those that only come out to volunteer during certain events. It doesn’t really impact me directly, but I think about how much more the campaign could do or reach if everyone was available to take an active role in the campaign.
Recently, I don’t feel like the level of responsibility that I have has increased or decreased, but rather stayed the same. However, I want to be able to step up after this upcoming week so that I can continue to be in the loop and up to date on plans. Maybe I can ask to aid someone in another field so that I can gain a little bot more experience. Maybe work on the campaign website or finish canvassing in areas that the campaign hasn’t reached yet. I know we need a larger presence in Saline, so that could be a possibility to where I will end up. Prior to that, the social media team is still working on creating an online video advertisement and a public service announcement script, so users can know Anuja’s stance on key issues as well as help spread her awareness.
