The 2020 election resource
for candidates, voters and media.
KEY WEST AND MONROE COUNTY
HOMETOWN! AGAIN UNVEILS ONE-STOP CANDIDATE
RESOURCE FOR 2020 ELECTIONS
Dear Incumbents and Candidates in the 2020 Elections,
Hometown has canceled its “Call for Candidates’ forum scheduled for April 13, at Salute. It has become a tradition to open the campaign/election cycle with this event so that incumbents, candidates and those simply “testing the waters” can speak to the voters as to proposed ideas and concepts for our vibrant community.
This year Hometown again unveils its candidate and election information resource for Monroe County voters, incumbents, candidates, the media and all those interested in good government. Remember: Hometown members are SuperVoters—they vote in every election-primary & general, making it more important than ever to take advantage of this platform.
Hometown's Design Team has developed individual candidate spaces that will offer the Hometown website visitor (voters and media) more information about you!
Hometown offers a chance for you to get your message out—we will post your photo, contact information (telephone, email address, Facebook, Twitter & Instagram info), and a short written statement (no more than 150 words) on Hometown’s website (Hometownkeywest.com). Hometown is also prepared to add, in light of the possible future lack of campaign rallies, Forums, Q&A Events and other voter contacts, the posting of a three-minute video setting forth each candidate’s vision of why he/she should be elected and what his/her views are on the most important issues facing his/her electorate.
1. Head Shot: High Resolution (if not already sent)
2. Email address and Telephone/Twitter –Instagram Info
3. Address (for campaign contribution checks :-)
4. Narrative 100 - 150 word count-to be strictly enforced--
5. Facebook & Website link
6. Video of Candidate Speaking-no longer than 3 minutes
Please send your video to Ms. Funkhouser and she will upload that to Hometown’s YouTube Channel and use that same video on the HometownKeyWest.com website. If you already have your own YouTube Channel and would prefer we use one of your existing YouTube videos (not exceeding three minutes), please send the URL of the page that has the video you would like.
Please keep in mind: Hometown cannot process your information if received in bits and pieces.
“It is important for voters to have access to candidate information before the Mail by Vote ballots land in voters’ mailboxes,” said Hometown Board Chairman Todd German. “Our mission is simple - Informed Voters Promote Good Government.”
It is uncertain when future events will be held prior to the primary. The primary deals in large part with contested partisan county, state and federal races to be ultimately decided in the November election. It is, however, a misnomer as to other non-partisan races such as Key West mayor and city commissioners, school board, etc—for these offices, it is the general election.
If candidates are limited in holding a pre-primary rally, and Hometown does not conduct events and forums that enable candidates to meet with and discuss issues with voters, then you, the other candidates, the voters, and the community are without the means to understand and opine on significant matters that may well alter our future.
DEADLINE—in order to be posted, Hometown must receive everything as soon as possible and in any event, no later than April 30. If you do not want to post everything requested or anything at all, that is your choice. Just please let us know. Thanks.
Why would you not take advantage of this?
