#BarstowStrong . . . The SilentMajority . . . BetterBarstow.com
We gather as a TEAM not only with a purpose of electing Dr. Paul Anthony Courtney, MAYOR City of Barstow/2020, but also to re-engage citizens in the process upon which our American representative democracy depends.
We view OUR campaign through the lens of a specific and targeted outcome, as well as an opportunity to invigorate the political process in OUR city for generations to come . . .
NO more not voting because you or someone else gaveUp!.
We are committed to both utilizing time-tested best practices and harnessing the energy, creativity, skills and insight brought to bear by each individual contributor.
We seek to re-imagine the political process not as a separate and distinct domain of a self-selected group of people to whom pay brief attention every few years, believing they are entitled to the office, but rather as an ongoing and dynamic conversation by which we individually and collectively answer the most pressing and fundamental questions about how to improve OUR city through new ideas and processes.
We are committed to truth, lifetime learning, and personal growth. We believe that manipulating information to achieve a desired outcome is a small and temporary victory, and instead view measurable outcomes as “in progress” rather than a fixed and predetermined measure.
Through this lens, we therefore view “mistakes” as opportunities for deeper knowledge and awareness AND proactively reject pigeonholing and the “nay-sayers” within the campaign, OUR city and from outsiders . . . those who seek to undermine us.
We believe deeply in what we are doing, and the possibilities inherent in this unique cultural and political moment . . . 2020 and beyond!
