Summary
  • ""On the Path to the Ballot" will focus on Informational Communications Campaigns (commonly referred to as info-only campaigns) for library staff and administrators. The book will discuss the library's role in the years leading up to a campaign and the library's role during ballot measure campaigns. Our companion title "How to Win Elections ..." focused on building and running ballot measure committees and vote Yes campaigns during an election cycle. The material is referential but does not overlap in significant ways. The readership may overlap, but because the legal structure of libraries and the legal structure of ballot committees do not allow for the same type of campaign work, the strategies, and tactics are unique and distinct to these audiences"--
  • Local tax revenue is the single largest source of funding for public libraries in every state. Since 2008, there has been a significant decline in funding support from state and federal agencies. Focusing on Informational Communications Campaigns (commonly referred to as info-only campaigns) for library staff and administrators, Chrastka and Sweeney discuss the library's role in the years leading up to a campaign and the library's role during ballot measure campaigns. -- adapted from introduction and publisher info
