Don't manage your own campaign
From Journal of New Organizing:
I often hear something like this from the people I talk to who are planning to run for local office: "I'm running a small campaign, I could probably do all of this myself."
On a small race, the candidate's first job should be engaging voters, followed by fundraising, interviews, and meet-and-greets.
A candidate who tries to take everything on personally is throwing away the campaign's most valuable resource (your time). That's why I recommend that all candidates - no matter how small the race - have a campaign manager or a small campaign committee to help with these organizational tasks.
"But I don't have any money to spend on a campaign manager!" No problem. You just need someone who cares about your race enough to help. Here are some suggestions.
