Dave Bragg - Menlo Park Council Candidate Going Viral

The question I've been asking myself is, "How do I let everyone else in Menlo Park learn about me and my campaign without being obnoxious?"

You may know that I am running for City Council in Menlo Park.  The question I've been asking myself is,"How do I let everyone else in Menlo Park learn about me and my campaign without being obnoxious?"

My thought today was to tell my Facebook friends to PLEASE forward this message to your Facebook friends that live in Menlo Park.  I'll know this has gone viral if I get 5,000 hits to davebragg.com this week. Or 5,000 likes on my FB page, which is: http://www.facebook.com/DaveBraggMPCityCouncil12

I am still figuring out Twitter: @dave4menlo

I will updating my views on topics important to you. I am happy to do it on Patch, but prefer to do it on FB. Please add comments or questions.

If this works, then I may be able to avoid all of the nasty conventional means of campaigning.  If it doesn't work, expect to hear me shouting corny slogans on a bull-horn as my convertible passes by your house at 3 mph.

Thanks for your help and support.  It means a lot to me.

Dave Bragg

uh Dave, you need to update your Patch profile so that it includes your portrait. That way voters can be assured you're a real person.

So here we are on the end of 1 week. we did not get 5000 likes or 5000 hits but we did get some good exposure. Results after 7 days on Facebook: Total Likes? 129 Friends of Fans? 38,919 People Talking About This? 139 Weekly Total Reach? 9,308 These results are good enough for me to continue my viral strategy in hopes, but the bull-horn may happen too. Please keep sharing my fb page and liking it to get my message out, and to let folks know who I am. http://www.facebook.com/DaveBraggMPCityCouncil12 or davebragg.com
