On May 7th I had the privilege of helping a couple campaigns execute a sweep of the Colleyville City Council – winning all three seats up for election. We had three challengers up against three incumbents, including the mayor of 11 years. Not only did we sweep all three seats – but our slate held together earning 62% of the vote across the board. Victories like this are cause for rejoicing.
In politics the battle cry for “UNITY” is often heard. It’s an accepted philosophy that to “win” we must be united – The truth is NOTHING could be farther from the truth.
After all, politics is nothing more than the arena of ideas. As with anything, competition is a requirement for healthy outcomes.
