We recently received the following comment in our 2007 election section. As you can see, “GPB” has come to an assumption regarding Accessmilton.com’s supposed endorsement of certain folks who are currently running for office.
“Hey Tim, Why is there no information on Neil O'Brien, Rick Mohrig and Roger Santi ??Are you endorsing Bailey/Hewitt/Tart ? If so, why not take credit for the endorsement and have your website reflect it? Your website gives the "appearance" of being apolitical and a "community service" site, but in fact appears to be quite the opposite. I urge you to take a more balanced approach to your website!
One could easily assume the same as this individual did by simply clicking into our Election Section and see web brochures only activated for certain folks. What he does not know is that all candidates were emailed a marketing piece back on Sunday, September 02, 2007 @ 11:00 AM. Please see it below:
Accessmilton.com, the #1 website for all things Milton , Georgia , will be providing readers with a special "Election Section 2007." This campaign arena will allow candidates to share with the citizens of Milton , Georgia their focus for the city and why they are the better choice for voters.
For an investment of only $499.00, the candidate will be able to incorporate a campaign web brochure in the "Election Section 2007". This one page brochure will include:
1. Pictures (A maximum of four.)
2. Campaign Agenda (text format.)
3. Endorsements ( A maximum of four.)
4. Link to your campaign website.
5. Contact information.
Should the candidate choose to upgrade the plan for an additional $100.00, they will be included in three Accessmilton.com e-newsletters running in September, October, and November of 2007. In addition, an interactive blog will be included within the campaign web brochure.
All content must be approved by the candidate via a signature form prior to incorporation provided by Accessmilton.com.
Should the candidate choose not to activate a campaign web brochure, no content will be listed for that candidate.
NOTE: The "Election Section 2007" will be active from Monday, September 10, 2007 through Monday, November 12, 2007.
Interested? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org / Subject Line: "Campaign Web Brochure" Today!
Offer Expires: Friday, September 7th, 2007.
All content MUST be received by Friday, September 7th, 2007.
It should be noted that we eventually waived the additional $100.00 upgrade fee and incorporated all candidates in our past two newsletters via questions. On top of which, we have given all six the opportunity to include press releases in our news section at no charge.
In closing, Accessmilton.com was created to be a voice for all. We encourage you to be heard via this website.
