I just want to thank you again for your support. Now that the campaign is over, I still need a bit more help. If you see any of my yard signs on public land, can you please collect them? If you have any you can call the campaign at (717) 968-5321 and we’ll come and pick them up. If you happen to see signs for Summers, Reilly, Perry, or Downs near my signs feel free to collect those as well, and I can return them. The signs must all be removed by the end of the day on May 4th. Thank you!
We did not win, but every vote in line with Liberty and the Constitution was a victory for freedom. Please keep spreading the message of Liberty.
Thank you so much for all of your support, love, and prayers. Thank you to everyone who volunteered and voted. Today was a victory, if not a win. We got approximately 3% of the vote. We beat one or two candidates, with conflicting reports which I will wait to check up on later.
I don’t know if I’ve ever been stretched this much in my life, and I learned more than I could have imagined. Thanks be to God, and thanks be to you, for making it all possible.
I need to be more vigilant in who I choose for public office, and I need to be more vigilant in keeping tabs on those in office. I need to hold myself more responsible for the problems we now face. and need to do more to fix them.
Let’s restore our United States Constitution: It is the foundation of the best government ever created by men.
We need YOU to work at a polling place on Tuesday, the 24th of April! Many people are undecided when going in to vote and we are gathering volunteers to pass out “Eric on the Issues” pages to voters.
You can print out copies of the page here (black and white is fine), or pick up pre-printed pages at 2088 Springwood Rd, York, PA 17403. This page and other campaign materials will be in a plastic tote by the back door.
If you are interested in volunteering on April 24th, please sign up to help at your polling precinct using this google doc. You can go to your own polling place, or call Eric at (717)968-5321 to find out the polling places with the heaviest traffic. Please feel free to contact the campaign with any questions.
Thank you so much for your help!
You are invited!

Great news! We just received a shipment of 1,000 yard signs. They are already being distributed by volunteers. If you would like a free yard sign (or lots of signs) please contact the campaign at (717)968-5321 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To see where signs have already been posted, you can go to the volunteer page and check out our new map.
Public property is fair game, but you can only put signs on private property if you have permission. After the primary on April 24th the campaign is responsible for taking all of the signs on public property down. So please understand that any sign you put up you need to take down within 10 days after April 24th. Thank you.
Don’t they look great? Our graphic designer, Kastin Krupinski did an awesome job on all of our campaign design work. Call us today to get yard signs, or other promotional materials!

Last night Melody and I went to a Ron Paul Meetup and then tried to go to a Rick Santorum speech in Gettysburg. We were late to the speech but still got to talk to some people. The following video is outside of where Santorum was speaking and was taken by active and interested person. It’s a brief overview me and why I’m running.
