MEMO TO BILL GREENE FOR CONGRESS:

STOP SENDING EMAILS WITH THE SUBJECT LINE IN ALL CAPS. IF THERE’S A QUICKER PATH TO MY SPAM BUCKET, I REALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS.

Aside, perhaps, from sending mass emails with the subject header “The most important letter I’ve ever written to you.”

    Dear Jeff,

    You must be on our Press Release email list. The Subject line on most of our PR emails is a copy of the headline of the press release itself. Our campaign email list, which is separate, does not employ all caps in the Subject line.

    And I’m sure you’re familiar with how direct response letters are written, which is why you rceived the other letter with the Subject line that offended you.

    Please feel free to use the handy “unsubscribe” link included in every email we send out if you’d like to be taken off any of our lists. Thank you for your consideration.

    Now, that’s the most important message that Bill Greene has ever written you!

    Next up?

    Candidates who begin their campaign emails with:

    My Precious Dear. My care on you attains high. Please let know an account in Nigeria…

    Hahaha! Seriously, it feels like that’s what the Greene campaign emails are.

    Bill, you can do one of two things: (1) Tell anyone who notices that to unsubscribe, or (2) Take the friendly advice and start campaigning instead of spamming.

    More friendly advice? Try #2.

    probably a typo, minor point kind of thing in the grand scheme–but if you are the bill green–who qualified today–that is how your name is spelled on the sec of state’s website…otherwise what a coincidence that 2 bill green(e)’s from brazelton are running for the same seat in a special election…

    I just like the fact that he lists people on his “endorsement list” that are paid staffers. That has got to be a first.

    Reminds me of the time Ralph Reed “endorsed” Mitch Skandalakis…after being on his payroll for like a year.

    This is the last thread dealing with the 10th CD, so I’ll ask it here:

    Who in the world is this Mark Myers who qualified today?

  9. drjay says:

    Myers, a Realtor from Loganville, also has made bids for the seat before. In 1988, he was the GOP nominee for the seat. He also ran in 1990 and 1992.

    Myers, 50, who was drawn out of the district under a set of congressional maps passed by the General Assembly in 2005, touted an endorsement from President Ronald Reagan during Myers’ first bid for the seat.

    Myers said he believes his party needs to return to the small-government, budget-shrinking philosophy articulated by Reagan.

    “He showed us how to win elections and he showed us how to govern after we win elections,” Myers said.

    If elected, Myers said he would focus on creating a commission to recommend cost-cutting initiatives, requiring spending measures to be posted on the Internet 72 hours before Congress votes on them and tightening immigration controls.

    Myers also said he opposed setting a date certain for withdrawing from Iraq, particularly after the U.S. had overthrown Saddam Hussein, overseen his trial and guided Iraqis to their first free elections in decades.

    “I guess one of the saddest things in the world is when you do 90 percent of what it takes to succeed and then you stop,” he said.
