Brian Thomas Off-Studio Interview – 5/29/2020
Watch my Facebook Live video of the interview here: “Live Virtually on Brian Thomas“.
Listen to the Brian Thomas online recording here: “Herman’s Talk with Brian Thomas“.
Here’s my summary.
This was an opportunity to introduce myself to a larger audience. Point of note is that I was disappointed by the audio from my end. I was surprised by the numerous ads in between conversation but it is a learning journey. I had a real moment where I wanted to distinguish myself with my vision for the future. It did not land very well. Growing pains. The deal is that the FIFA World Cup is coming and it has huge revenues and will produce numerous jobs. We need our eye on that ball as many other municipal governments are. We will!
Lincoln Ware Off-Studio Interview – 5/26/2020
Watch full interview here: “Live Virtually on Lincoln Ware“. Here’s my summary.
This off-studio interview was an opportunity for listeners to get to know me as a person. After telling of my background and family, I pointed out that I started petitioning in April 2019 before anyone expressed interest. My desire was to run against previous County Commissioner Todd Portune. I believed I could have won that match-up. I pointed out that I petitioned in 2018 to run against Chris Monzel knowing that I could beat him but fell short of the signature requirement. It definitely is a challenge for Independents to make the ballot and I am deeply humbled that many voters in Hamilton County saw it fit to give me a chance on the ballot.
I clarified that I am in this race to run against myself, not against the party-backed candidates. As an Independent I do not benefit from any corporate backing and I’m running a remarkable campaign for the joy of inspiring excellence in county leadership. I know that I have the most comprehensive platform of all the candidates in the race for Hamilton County Commissioner.
