This question was asked in the comments section of the Galveston Daily News.
J. Shaffer - unfortunately, there's not much info here [on the GDN Campaign Note], but I am always available to answer any of your questions. Please email me at email@example.com. To directly answer your question, I am a small business owner - I've been an entrepreneur (and Mom!) ever since getting out of the Army. Today, I own a private firearms dealership in Nassau Bay.
More about me is available on my website under MEET HEIDI - see Bio & Resume.
And then ask away! There's a ton of info on this website - which is very interactive by the way, to encourage questions and feedback. I am putting everything out there, because it's what I have always wanted to see from candidates. Now that I AM one, I'm living up to my own expectations.
During the early election season of 2007, I volunteered for the Duncan Hunter Presidential campaign. I built a grassroots coalition in the Houston area, raised funds, did public speaking on his behalf and became a leader in his Texas race. As you may already know, Duncan Hunter was wildly successful in Texas, sweeping the Straw Poll in August 2007 by a 2-1 margin over the closest Republican challenger, Fred Thompson. I then became aware that Congressman Hunter was being barred by the SC GOP from participating in the pre-primary debate. Emboldened by Hunter's momentum in Texas, I made use of my title as his South Texas Grassroots Director and generally made a nuisance of myself on the east coast in an attempt to get Fox News and the SC GOP to recognize his right to be included. It was my last stand on Duncan Hunter's behalf. Unfortunately, he was not allowed in the debate and later, in early 2008, he withdrew from the race - followed within a couple of days by Fred Thompson.
