Once in a Blue Moon Election 

  Request this author
With a national and state political environment that was discouraging in its bipartisan scandals and disheartening in its reliance on "big money," Gerry Bowles embarked in 2006 on an eight-month adventure to get elected to the North Carolina State Senate. Motivated by her desire to involve her fellow citizens in the process of elections, Gerry built an energized grassroots campaign that operated on a shoestring budget and came close to securing her district's seat. Emerging afterward with a renewed passion to educate, entertain, engage and empower others in her community regarding participation in politics, Gerry writes of her experiences with her 2006 campaign. This book offers a personal how-to for other grassroots advocates, gives a behind the scenes peek at the political process, and shows the many wins that come from making people, not money, the priority in the campaign.
