Trump’s Shangri-La Cincinnati Office: How to find it and what you can do to help

 

So, you’ve seen the last debate before the massive votes across the United States—specifically Florida and Ohio—and you want to know what you can do to help Trump have a big night.  Maybe you want to help walk neighborhoods in Ohio to keep Kasich—who has been an epic failure to those who know him best within the state—from winning on Tuesday, March 15.th   Maybe you want to do one little thing to rob him of that diminutive joy of at least winning Ohio during a primary process that has turned out to be a massive failure for him.  Kasich started running for president in 2013 and spent much of his second term positioning himself essentially as a Democrat to expand his influence to the northern part of the state just to run for president in 2016.   In the process he let down the people who helped elect him and that deserves some rectification.  Trump is the best chance we have of setting many things right, especially robbing Kasich of the Tuesday night prize.  Perhaps you want to make calls on behalf of Trump, or maybe you just want a yard sign.  Well, here is the information you need to make all those things happen over the next couple of days.

I went looking for yard signs for Trump and whatever else I could do to help and found that the Cincinnati office was nestled in a neat little business park behind Chuckee Cheese right off Kemper Road near Tri-County.  It was the second building south of the complex and on the second floor.  I noticed immediately in the windows facing north the Trump signs advertising the Shangri-La of American politics—the epicenter of the most exciting political movement in over an American century—perhaps longer.  Literally stepping into the building after parking on the west side of the building was a magnificent water garden with office complexes facing inward toward the lush atmosphere—a little bridge extended over a babbling brook filled with fish paved the way toward a Trumpian paradise beyond.  It was quite a majestic feel complete with all the elements of heaven.  I followed the path to its conclusion and found an elevator which took everyone upstairs to level 2.  Once there a short trip down the hall, a left turn for about 10 feet and the Trump campaign office was on the next door on the right.   Here is the information I used to find the office.

Subject: TRUMP CINCINNATI OFFICE OPEN

Greetings. The Cincinnati Trump Office is now open and we have only 6 DAYS!!! I personally, Robert Scott, the State Director of Ohio, will be manning the office until Election Day on March 15!

Here is what we need ASAP.

(1) Volunteers in the headquarters. We will be open from 9 AM to 9 p.m. starting tomorrow. If you would like to bring anything to hang on the walls and decorate the headquarters. We have snacks and other goodies!

(2) Volunteers to make phone calls from the headquarters. Please bring your Cell Phone and Computer/Tablet with you.

(3) Volunteers to walk their neighborhood for Mr. Trump immediately until Tuesday!

The office is located at:

1329 E. Kemper Rd., Suite 4212 (Second floor) Cincinnati, OH 45246

I found Robert Scott there who was busy setting up the Saturday Trump rally in Dayton where Trump will glide up to a Wright Patterson hangar to give one of his airport speeches by stepping straight out of his private 757 and up to a podium to address fans.  Then a quick jump up to an arena in Cleveland to a packed house there.  Robert was busy also arranging a Sunday rally.   We spoke about the Duke Energy Center down in Cincinnati and we talked about Lakota Schools.  Lakota wouldn’t return the phone calls, and The Duke Energy Center emerged as a possible venue for Sunday just ahead of the election.  He and I spoke strategy and he loaded me up with campaign items and I left feeling that the Trump people were very well-organized and committed.  But they do need the usual help, so the days ahead of Tuesday will be a fight that will require as many people as possible that should be in on it.

I was reminded of the Perot Campaign office in 1992 which was on Montgomery Road years ago, next to Camargo Cadillac.  It was a very vibrant atmosphere that had the feeling of a revolution about it.  Another location that I remember well was the Greenup Street location right next to the Suspension Bridge in Covington, Kentucky.  Even all these years later I remember the camaraderie of going to war with those people in that time under those tenuous conditions.  It felt important and it was–it actually paved the way for where we are today.  I have been around other campaigns and there is a commonality to them—but nothing was quit like those experiences on Montgomery Road in the fall of 1992.  With that said, the energy I felt at the Trump headquarters in Cincinnati was surging beyond that Perot experience—because there was a feeling in the air that finally one of these elections would actually make a difference.  Most of the time, the kind of people who show up to volunteer for these kinds of things are full of love and passion—but the candidate is mostly all air.  Ross Perot certainly wasn’t—but he was nothing like Donald Trump.  Leaving that place and walking back through the indoor water garden back to my car was like the Trump candidacy itself.  A lush landscape of unexpected possibility surrounded by multiple businesses thriving with energy always looking toward opportunity—it was probably the most bizarre, yet all-encompassing place for Trump to have a southern Ohio headquarters.  What a great place to be a part of an emerging movement that carried on its back the hopes and dreams of a nation.

There are only a few days to make a difference.  So get down there, pick up some signs and spread them around town. Get them in front of voting places around Cincinnati on Tuesday.  Better yet, volunteer to go door to door.  Kasich and Cruz will certainly have their people out and Trump needs to have that ground game in place to advance the cause.  Even better than that, go down to the headquarters, order up some carry-out and make some calls under Scott’s direction.  You will never forget the experience.  It’s an opportunity to be a part of history and the memory of it will last a lifetime—regardless of the outcome.  Fortunately for this particular ground shaking movement—the stars are aligning in the favor of reform—for really the first time in American history without an armed revolt to go along with it.  And that is big news.

  1. So low key compared to other campaigns that I have worked for. Mr. Trump is smart and knows how to run a campaign without using the big funders that want to run the show. I’ll try and make it to the
    headquarters. I need a few signs for the poll where I am working.

    1. I’ll see if the guy who ran Ohio has any more. But if not, the quickest way is likely to drive over into Lawrenceburg to get one. The exact address can be found by calling them at:

      For help, contact the Trump Indiana HQ
      317-689-1100

      I’m sure they’ll get a sign to you.
