This suggested letter was sent to us by a Eye on Jacksonville follower. He did not want to be identified BUT we felt it was a great ACTION ITEM that anyone could do. If you would like to send the same letter OR walk your neighborhood and leave it on the front door, go for it. What a great way to meet neighbors too! The criteria used was: Contact Supervisor of Elections office. Ask for a list of:
- All Registered Voters in your neighborhood;
- Those who match the party you are associated with; and
- ONLY the ones who vote in Presidential elections only and not in the midterms.
You can use that list to write your letter (sample below).
IF YOU DO UNDERTAKE THIS SMALL MISSION, LET US KNOW! WE’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
Please indulge me and take 2 minutes to read this letter.
My name is _________________ . I live in the _____________ neighborhood near you.
I am very concerned about the future of our country. I believe most people
- don’t want a socialist America;
- don’t want an America that no longer follows the rule of law; and
- or an America that surrenders its liberties to political correctness and hysterics.
I don’t know if this applies to you, but as I see it, so many people have given up participating in elections that we end up with a small percentage of the population deciding the course of our society. For a democracy to work, it needs the broad middle of society to participate.
I urge you to not sit out this election. The old adage that says “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” holds true today, more than ever. I know this ballot is long because of the Constitutional Amendments. If you want to know more about the Amendments, read this article at Eye on Jacksonville to help you make your decisions: Amendments
Only vote for the offices and questions you feel comfortable. You can leave the others blank. Please do vote for Senator, House of Representatives and Governor.
I alone, have written this letter. I have paid the postage. No candidate or Party has been involved. I am only contacting voters in our precinct. This is all I can afford to do.
Please commit to vote in the November 6th election.
Vote on Election Day
- at our precinct located at _______________________
- or vote at an early voting site
- or vote by mail. Call the Supervisor of Elections Office at 904 – 630-1414 to request a Vote By Mail Ballot.
Thank you for your time. America and our children are depending us.

She started her own consulting practice, CEO Service Bureau, in 2001 and earned a reputation for her keen understanding of the motivations, challenges and goals of people and became a life-long student and teacher of leadership principles. She craved anything leadership related and enjoyed being around the world of entrepreneurial CEOs. She watched as they made decisions; pondered how they would make payroll when cash flow was tight; and appreciated how they created career opportunities for hundreds of thousands of people. Because of her experiences, she has emerged as a key resource for the media and others who want to understand important insights about executives, management teams and board dynamics. In 2008, Billie became discouraged as she watched some of her clients struggle with the political economic impacts on their businesses. The same CEOs who mortgaged their home and charged up their credit cards to make ends meet to build a business and keep others working, now watched as their government bailed out the big banks who had mismanaged their resources. She cringed as most of her clients laid off employees for the first time and she vowed she would help them… somehow…someway. That somehow…someway showed up in the Tea Party Movement in America. She formed one of the largest tea party group’s in America (more than 9,000 members strong) and helped bring attention to America’s debt problem, out of control spending, over taxation and regulation strangulation on companies. With her background in working with leaders and her influence in the political and leadership world, Billie has continued her dream to help CEOs navigate these troubling waters that permeate the world of capitalism in America. She has been an active participant in the media as a guest on CNN, Fox News, Fox Business, Bott Family Network Radio and co-hosts a political/financial radio show in the Northeast Florida market entitled, Smart Money. She was the first speaker at the House of Representatives Tea Party Caucus inaugural event and was invited by Heritage Foundation to speak at their prestigious annual Heritage Resource Bank, and on their National Security Panel live broadcasts. She spoke at the Congressional Republican House Retreat in Pennsylvania in 2012. She was also the co-host and co-producer of the CNN Tea Party Express Debate in the 2012 Presidential Election. She is a firm believer that America needs more entrepreneurs and more opportunities for people to use their God-given talents and passions to better themselves, their communities and America. Her favorite quote has become her mission to help CEOs succeed: “Vision without execution is hallucination.” – Thomas Edison[/author_info] [/author]
