Decentralized Campaigns

I found this discussion of Stephen Smith’s ‘people-powered’ campaign tactics quite relevant to potential organizing/growth strategies for Resonate. Note that ‘listening’ is key.

Stephen is presently a candidate for Governor in the US state of West Virginia. He is challenging social conditions described in the interview as ‘neo-feudal’. Picture this: the present Governor, Jim Justice, is the wealthiest person in the state. Gov. Justice was elected as a Democrat in 2015 then switched to the Republican party after Donald Trump’s election in 2017.

The interview with Stephen Smith begins about 35.52 and focuses on the decentralized principles that guide the organizing structure of his campaign.
