Election Day in Lincoln – A Word About John Spatz

Syndicate This While it may appear to be a conflict of interest I wanted to take a moment to let you know about my interactions with John Spatz, candidate for Lincoln’s 4th district City Council seat.

Schrock Innovations designed a website for John’s campaign (hence the possible conflict of interest), and in the process of working with him personally I have learned a great deal about John’s personality, his tendencies, and his moral compass.

We have designed and hosted campaign websites before and 9 times out of ten getting content out of a candidate for a website is like extracting sap from a petrified tree. Then, when we would finally get some content for the site (pictures, videos, copy) it was drier than cotton mouth.

This was not the case with John. John embraced the idea of using his website as a conduit to communicate with the constituents in the city. He was able to learn from visitor’s concerns, raise a little campaign money, and use his blog to respond to current events as they unfolded in Lincoln.

John expressed to me from the start that he did not want any online shenanigans. He wanted a clean online campaign that helped him get his message out to people that the traditional media could not (or would not) reach. And that is exactly what we did.

Today is election day in Lincoln and I would encourage you to vote for a candidate who knows the meaning of hard work and dedication. John Spatz is a natural leader who **shocker** is really in this race to better the city of Lincoln. If you are undecided about who you will vote for in the 4th district City Council race, I would encourage you to visit John’s website and learn more about him. He is a good man and will make a legendary city council person.

    I see that John won by 1% in the primary. Annette is going to have to step it up in the general if she wants to win.

    He won, but I live in Plattsmouth so I can’t vote for him 🙁
