Speakman To Take To The Air?

By Greg L | 20 March 2011 | Loudoun County | 5 Comments

Ron Speakman is first out of the gate with some quality video in the Loudoun Sheriff’s race. This video appears to be cut for broadcast television or cable, which either indicates Speakman is going to do an ad buy in this expensive market, or is at least hedging bets with website videos that can be run on the airwaves if the opportunity permits.

Either way, to see Speakman following up a bunch of direct mail pieces with television commercial production makes me wonder whether the other candidates in this race can possibly afford to compete here. No one else in this race seems to be spending anywhere near this amount of money to get their message out there.

    It’s been said from the get-go… Chapman had a great face to put on the race (prior to his trip-and-fall act) and no money.
    Speakman was viewed as the geeky one, but had tons of cash to push with.
    Developer infusions, assisted by the developer liason of the 2007 Loudoun Elections have Chapman beginning to compete…but the fundraising hasn’t “really” kicked off yet.
    Dickerson is about to hit the eaccelerator in funding….Davis is having a fundraiser Saturday in a Middleburg “gala”… and Ron is pretty much self-funded. It’ll get better before it’s over.

    This Speakman guy definitely understands what’s going on. First is that solid policy on illegal aliens that got everyone talking. Now this great commercial talking about the challenges and solutions for LC. If anyone has the competence to run a campaign that will unseat Simpson, this is the guy.

    Anonymous, he may have sufficient money and the ability to hire people to run a good campaign, but remember that you are not just nominating someone who can beat Simpson. You are nominating someone to hold the office of sheriff. You want to be certain that you nominate someone with not only the ability to run the office well but who also possesses the character that such a position demands.

    There is certainly nothing wrong with the position he has articulated on illegal immigration. But it is easy to say things that are popular on that issue. Especially when running for the Republican nomination. That doesn’t automatically bestow upon him the qualities that make a good sheriff.

    Look very closely at this guy’s history. You may find that another choice would be a better fit for the office.

    Money and good campaign staff don’t trump history and character.

    Greg, you know I love you man, but don’t you think it would be appropriate to tell your readers that you made this “quality video”??? I am absolutely not knocking the video - it is great, but if you’re being paid by the guy I would hope you would disclose that fact in this and future posts. Your opinions in the Loudoun Sheriff’s race cannot be considered impartial if you’re being paid by one of the candidates.
