VOTE MIKE PRUZ (RESULTS)

LOST

I would like to thank everyone for their support. While I lost by a lot, I learned a lot working and talking with all you. While our view might be in the minority right now, don't be discouraged. The first time Susan B Anthony and Martin Luther King Jr. said "we are human too," they got less than 5% support from the mainstream.

We knew going in that it would not be a fair fight. From day 1, both extremes were telling me drop out because I was a threat to their success. As more and more Larimer County voters continue to be frustrated with big money buying politicians and the negativity of the two extreme parties influencing our elections, more and more Larimer County voters will register unaffiliated and consider alternate candidates.

While I didn't win the war, I did win the two most important battles:

1) Zero Special Interest Money.

2) Most efficient spending at a mere 8 cents per vote. The other races varied from $1.26 to a whopping $17.57 per vote.

I'll be applying what I learned during this process to continue my efforts to affect positive change. I won't be out in public meetings much the next few months as I'll be concentrating on my business:

MONEY

Here is the data from the "30-Day After" reports showing how much money was spent on each race. It is interesting that 3 or 4 races the winning campaign had the most spending. The only case that this didn't hold true was D4 which is the City's "Bedroom District" (not very many businesses).
