Here is why Twitter is awesome lesson #5096
The power of Social Media lives on.
With a commitment to "keeping politics clean," candidate Erika Kotite, Democrat, reports that she appeared at the Harvest Fair Saturday with boxes of handmade soaps to give away to passersby. She got the idea after viewing soap maker Ellen Cagnassola's website, someone she's been following on Twitter for the past year. Ms. Kotite asked her to make some special soaps to give out during her campaign.
Ms. Kotite is running on a platform of Lowering Taxes, Cutting Excessive Spending, Preserving Hopewell's Community and History, and Promoting Local Agriculture and Business. She has pledged to keep her campaign respectful, and challenges her opponents to do the same.
The bars have the slogan "Keep Politics Clean! Vote Erika Kotite Hopewell Township Committee" embedded in them. Ms. Kotite passed them out at the Harvest Fair and plans to give more away in various neighborhoods during the campaign.
Ms. Kotite is a candidate for Hopewell Township Committee. She serves on the Historic Preservation Commission and Harbourton Traffic Calming Task Force. She is an independent business owner as well as founder and editor of Toque Magazine. She and her husband have three children. They live in the old Harbourton General Store, one of the township's most treasured historic landmarks.
