As part of the election process, I am going to give at least 1 update per week (ideally released on Friday), about what has happened this week in my life (in regards to the 2018 Governor of Alabama election) or just election news in general (that may not pertain to me directly).
These updates are strictly political. If you were looking for something more personal, I would suggest visiting my personal website at www.drewtolbert.com.
2018 Governor of Alabama Election Weekly Update 6/9/2017 edition
Scott Dawson’s announcement
If you missed the Rick and Bubba show on Monday… here is the summary.
First let me say, I like Scott Dawson. I really wish he wasn’t running at the same time I am running. He will, of course, have a long run ahead of him since he has to win the Republican primary.
I do have to say he and I did align in one aspect. He tried to talk someone from the Rick and Bubba show into running.
My personal opinion on the announcement
Can I be completely honest for just a moment? At some point, I know it will end, but I am LOVING all of the candidates throwing their name into the hat. Every article published announcing a new candidate has all the candidate’s names on it… that includes mine.
People are seeking me out now! That is huge!
The more people that are looking to see who I am are more people doing their research!
One of my election goals was to create voter awareness and increase public interest in the government.
This is the reason why there were more people than ever going to the polls to vote in the Presidential election. President Trump increased public interest and voter awareness.
Do I want everyone to support me and vote for me? YES! However, most importantly I want the voters in Alabama to be educated informed and make a logical decision.
Thank you for your continued support
