By any measure, our guest this week is one of the most conservative members of the Texas State House of Representatives. Jonathan Stickland is also a good friend and client of mine.
Jonathan has been a conservative rockstar in the Texas State House, playing a central role in most of the major political battles that have played out during his three terms in office. As a result of his convictions and the political threat he’s posed to his opponents, every one of his elections have been stiffly contested.
I’m really excited about this week’s episode, not just because we have a phenomenal guest to talk about the timely topic of cybersecurity and your campaign. It’s ALSO because this week marks the end of our first full year publishing this podcast!
Today I want to flesh those ideas out a bit. If you want to hear our conversation, check out the podcast episode at the 20 minute mark.
Dick Morris told Bill Clinton that polls don’t tell you WHAT to do. They tell you HOW to do it. Now, I don’t particularly care for Mr. Morris but he nailed that piece of advice and it supports our thesis here. Even when the right thing IS the popular thing, that’s not why we should do it.
Our guest this week knows about winning and losing in politics.
Tom Lucero has been a businessman, entrepreneur and community activist in northern Colorado for over 21 years. He has owned restaurants and several software companies.
After helping with Veterans Outreach on the Trump Campaign last year, Tom hooked up with Benghazi survivor, Mark “Oz” Geist and started Our Values, an organization dedicated to increasing Veterans involvement in politics. We’ll be talking a lot about this today and the partnership we’re developing with them and My Campaign Coach.
