Press Release - Youngest Mayoral Candidate Passes Halfway Mark in “Silent Majority Tour”

For Immediate Release:

Youngest Mayoral Candidate Passes Halfway Mark in “Silent Majority Tour”

Central Saanich mayoral candidate Sean McNulty, 24, has passed the halfway mark in his quest to knock on the door of every household in the municipality.  The political upstart began his trek this summer, several months after being the first to declare candidacy for the 2008 race.

“The municipality took an interest into the business I operated, so I decided to take an interest in what they were doing,” says McNulty.  “I was blown away by what I saw and found other residents were just as frustrated as I was.”

After wondering exactly how widespread these grievances were, McNulty set off to gather them directly by knocking on the over 5500 doors in the community.

“I saw it as a chance to supplement my knowledge of the municipality’s issues,” remarked McNulty of the tour.  “And what better way to let the residents get to know their candidate?”

Sean even bought a small gas-powered scooter so he could effectively reach all of the widely-separated homes in the mostly rural community.

“Initially people were skeptical that I would follow through with my promise, the scooter showed the residents I don’t just talk the talk I walk the walk. Now, 6 months later, we’re almost there!”

McNulty – already well-known in the community for his long-running “Sean for Mayor” billboard on the Patricia Bay Highway – provides day-to-day tracking of his “Silent Majority” tour on his website (www.seanformayor.com).  The site features articles, updates and insights gained from discussions with residents and personal views.

Municipal elections are being held on November 15th, and residents of Central Saanich can vote at the Central Saanich Municipal Hall.

Sean will be free for telephone inquiries or interviews at 250-413-7279 anytime.

Below is a post I made on the Honeycomb Web Works blog that can be found at : http://honeycombwebworks.ca/content/first-100-transparent-campaign-sean-mcnulty

The First 100% Transparent Campaign

What makes the Sean for Mayor Campaign unique?

Is it the fact that we’re knocking on every door in the municipality? Partly, as this will be a first for the CRD region, but there are people who’ve knocked on more doors to get elected before.

Is it my age? If I win, yes, as I’ll be the youngest Mayor in Canadian History. But just putting your name forward as a candidate isn’t unique. Currently, there is a 19 year old running for Mayor of Victoria and a 19 year old running for council in Kelowna.

What makes my campaign unique is the fact that it is 100% transparent. By this I mean my views on just about everything are out there for the voters to judge. Even presidential candidates attempt to reveal less about their viewpoints and generally just use loose talking points. If you visit John McCain’s or Barack Obama’s websites you’ll notice that there are very few articles published by themselves. Most is done by campaign staff or supporters, and most is done for the sake of motivating each of their respective bases.

I decided to run my campaign this way because I believe people appreciate honest and transparency over secrecy and deception. All the presidential candidates continue to talk about a new kind of politics, but then continue an old style campaign. The Sean for Mayor Campaign is that new kind of politics, where the voters get to learn about my candidacy from my own words, not spun by the media, and have the opportunity to have me answer their questions and concerns either publicly on the blog or privately via email.

To date, I’ve got 105 articles posted making up hundreds of pages on everything you can imagine. Talk about a great deal for the voter (and a way to keep my campaign manager on his toes)!

Without the modern day version of the blog this couldn’t be possible. Due to this new medium we’re going to see all sorts of new exciting campaigns come out. There are so many different ways to get your message to the voter now!

Honeycomb Web Works has been a tremendous asset to our innovative website and thanks to excellent companies such as them everyone can setup a blog affordably, that looks great, plus gets ‘pure performance and sweet results’!

Sincerely,

Sean McNulty
Mayoral Candidate in Central Saanich

Live from New York

World 3 Comments »

I’ve been in New York since Sunday for the World Business Forum and what an exciting place to be! Especially with the upheaval of Wall Street and the UN General Assembly going on, there couldn’t be a better time to visit.

Down on Wall Street, I had the chance to swing by the New York Stock Exchange. It’s really something to observe, just massive buildings and tons of people. I also took some time to call around on lease space on the most expensive strip in the world. Right now, to lease 20 000 sqft on Wall Street its $3.5 million per year. To rent a 1 bedroom studio apartment of about 500sqft is running $2700 per month.

In the rest of Manhattan, security is everywhere as every leader of every country in the world is within a few blocks of my Hotel. Plus, every building you go in they check your bag and pat you down.

The World Business Forum has been one of the most educational experiences I’ve had. I’m a strong believer that the people you want to talk with and listen to are the people with a track record of success, and I am in the right place to do that. Among the many speakers of this 2 day event were:

Colin Powell
Madeleine Albright
Rudy Giuliani
Jack Welsh
David Rubenstein
Tony Blair

They even had an open mic session where you could get up and ask questions. I took this opportunity to ask Rudy - in front of 5000 executives - some questions about the Presidential Race. Plus throughout the conference I gave these New Yorkers a few tips on the bailout, which I’m sure they appreciated ;).

What I found really remarkable is that all these great leaders of our time shared many of the same characteristics. They were confident, but also aware of what they did and didn’t know. If a question stumped them, they said so. The charisma they had was amazing, although it was a unique type within each of them, they really drew the room in and carried themselves in a way that commanded respect. All had a great sense of humour, especially Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright. They were going back and forth on their disagreements and it was hilarious.

After seeing and listening to these fascinating individuals, you know why they rose to the top in each of their respective fields. It had nothing to do with race, with gender or with their socio-economic status. It had everything to do with hard work, perseverance and dedication to their cause or profession. They’ve earned the privilege to be on that stage and are truly remarkable human beings.

I’m off to a Broadway Show, see you back in Central Saanich on the 29th!

Sincerely,

Sean

Introducing the Sean for Mayor Scooter!

World, Federal, Provincial, Municipal, Central Saanich Municipality 4 Comments »

When the Sean for Mayor Campaign first announced I was going to knock on every house in the district, we were met with some skepticism.

It is a tremendous task which presents some formidable logistic challenges.

But when the Sean for Mayor Campaign is confronted with a challenge we don’t stagnate, we innovate!

Therefore, thanks to the generous donations by the Sean for Mayor supporters, we’ve purchased a 2000 Honda Scooter (appropriately named the “Sean for Mayor Scooter”) to get me around to every house in the district as promised!

If you see me riding down the road honk and get a free bumper sticker!

Sincerely,
Sean

The Silent Majority Tour has now visited over 1000 homes!

World, Federal, Provincial, Municipal, Central Saanich Municipality 4 Comments »

I’m proud to announce that tonight the Tour went over 1000 homes!

It’s amazing to see the diversity within our neighbourhoods in Central Saanich. I’ll knock on one door, and meet a person with a certain political viewpoint. Then right next door, I’ll meet someone else with the exact opposite political point of view. If you locked them in a room together only one would come out alive!

This is the embodiment of what makes Central Saanich, not to mention the Western World, such a fantastic place to live. Our system values individuality over conformity and protects the minority from the majority, which cultivates mutual respect for each others pursuit of happiness.

I’ll be coming to your neighbourhood soon, look forward to meeting you!

Sincerely,

Sean

Ending Hunger One Truck at a Time

World, Federal, Provincial, Municipal, Central Saanich Municipality 2 Comments »

My brother, James McNulty, launched a charitable drive called “Ending Hunger One Truck at a Time” with some help from his friend Erin Wong and our family business Five Star Paving. The Goldstream News Gazette picked up on the story which I’ve posted below.

Great work James!

Sean

James McNulty may be young, but he’s planning to make a difference with a little help from The Mustard Seed and a lot of help from his friend Erin Wong.

“I just wanted to get more involved with the community” McNulty, 20, said.

Earlier this year he approached the Mustard Seed looking for ideas on how he could help Victoria – the city he grew up in.

Just a week after making contact with the food bank, the Mustard Seed turned around and approached McNulty with a project – a food drive in support of National Hunger Awareness Day on June 5.

McNulty had about a month to organize an event, so he recruited the support of his families business, Five Star Paving and Wong.

Wong had just finished his year at the University of Victoria and with some free time on his hands was able to take over a lot of the organizing.

This is the first year the young men have organized a food drive and it wasn’t as easy as they thought.

Originally their plan was to raise money to buy food at cost from local grocery stores, but McNulty and Wong had trouble getting stores on board with the idea and couldn’t find any supporters.

So instead McNulty turned to the industry he knows well, construction.

On June 3 and 4, Five Star Paving trucks will be driving around to collect monetary donations, mostly from businesses related to the construction industry.

The donations will then be brought to the Mustard Seed to be shared with the Goldstream Food Bank Society and the Sidney Lions Food Bank.

Because fresh food is hard to keep, all the money raised will be used to purchase perishable items as the food banks need them.

Both McNulty and Wong are excited for this drive, if not just to see what they can bring in, then also to make a game plan for next year’s drive.

“Next year, with a bit more exposure, hopefully we can get more,” McNulty said.

McTavish Elementary School Video Project

World, Federal, Provincial, Municipal 1 Comment »

Below I’ve copied an email that Alex Cook sent me regarding a spectacular undertaking by some kids out here on the Peninsula.

Show your support and help them win $50 000 by voting for their project at http://www.quantumshift.tv/schools/.

Thanks Alex!

Sean

Hi there!

Something big is hopefully about to happen for a little school right here on the island. McTavish Elementary School (a school of less than 200 students) has entered a video contest for creating change and environmental impact. The first prize is $50,000. They have made it to the final 3 and now they are up against 2 high schools in the United States.(so that makes McTavish the only elementary school and the only school in Canada to make it this far! Due to the larger populations at high schools and the US we have our work cut out for us) At this point it is who can get the most votes. So this little school needs your help! Please view their video - they have worked extremely hard and have had an impact on the whole Peninsula Community with their recycling program.

Click on  the link below and choose Join/Login from the top menu bar. After creating a login, view the McTavish Green Team video.  If you think they have done a good job and you would like to see the money go to a local school please vote for them.  All voting must be completed by May 30th!

http://www.quantumshift.tv/schools/

It would be greatly appreciated if you would pass this on anybody you think would help.
