We’ve got mail

Campos observed the other day that he’d hardly received any campaign mailers so far this year. That’s largely been true for me as well – before this week, I’d gotten the Peter Brown pieces, an Anna Eastman mailer, and maybe one or two others that aren’t sticking in my mind. But since Thursday, things have picked up considerably. Over the last three days, I have received:

– One more Peter Brown piece.
– Two mailers from Alma Lara, one of which prominently features State Rep. Jessica Farrar.
– A Pam Holm mailer, which has the same front as this one but a different back, which appears to be an image taken from her TV ad.
– A Ronald Green mailer – yes! he’s spending money!
– And the Noel Freeman mailer that Martha and Stace have discussed.

That last one was interesting in that it was addressed to Tiffany and not me or the both of us, as all the others were. Unlike me, Tiffany has voted in a GOP primary or two in her day, and as such we occasionally get mail or robocalls that are clearly intended for that kind of an audience. Which makes me wonder who the intended audience for Freeman’s piece was. Frankly, if it’s being aimed at soft Rs with a good voting history, that strikes me as a very reasonable strategy. Given that Freeman did not report much cash on hand in his 30 days out report, one wonders how widely this was sent, or if he got a late infusion of cash from somewhere. We’ll know when we see the 8 days out report, I guess. What mail have you received lately, if any?

    As a consistent Republican voter and never-missed-a-city-election voter, I also have gotten little mail at home: (I did get fundraising appeals early on from Stardig, Peck, Wathen in District A, and Morales and Holm.) 4 campaign pieces for Peter Brown, one for Holm, the Noel Freeman mailer, and a Jack Christie “Houston is at a crossroads” flyer which just arrived. Christie yard signs sprouted up over the weekend in medians all over town, too. We are getting lots more social media contacts this cycle: Carlos Obando, Noel Freeman, Annise Parker, Peter Brown through facebook, etc.
