The Quest for New Office Space

As a campaign manager for congressional candidates, I have a variety of business responsibilities from writing press releases to locating new office space. Of course, I handle all the ins and outs of an election. I have been known to find a black suit at the last minute for a promotional event and have managed events of all kinds. Nothing is beyond my realm or capabilities or I wouldn’t be in this business. It is indeed a privilege as elections and reshaping government are at the heart of a democracy. I can’t say enough about the patriotic duty of voting for your preferred candidate. People who never vote are at the bottom of my admiration scale. I do what I can to turn things around, and it is sometimes a difficult task. Hence this blog in support of the entire process.

My last candidate won his race and he has openly credited me with a great deal of his success. I had done an excellent job of outreach in the community and I had performed miracles, as he put it, to put him in office. I am glowing with pride. Now, it was my job to literally put him in an office—a new one in fact. His old office had shown signs of imminent mold, which we all know is rather unhealthy. I brought in a crew to clean the walls, but he still was hesitant about occupying this afflicted space. An inspector hired by his building manager brought with him a moisture meter. Not only did it detect the cause of the mold, but it also revealed some structural problems.

A moisture meter is a handy gadget in the construction industry and even for at home woodworking and wood floor projects. This type of device is also called a damp meter and the one used for my client was designed with a pinless, non-damaging technology that enables the user to quickly scan or spot check in seconds. This innovative product goes below surface condition for accurate measurements of moisture. It can diagnose various problematic situations in wood. My candidate’s old office had many weaknesses that went beyond normal ambient surface conditions. Other types of moisture meters have insulated pins that are great at detection, but can cause a little damage. Thus, you can use them in only small areas unlike the pinless model that can cover large volumes of wood safely and accurately. If you’re just getting started with woodworking, then you should read this: It’ll teach you all of the basics and you’ll be up to speed in no time.

Once his old office was dismissed as a good location for his congressional term, I found him some alternatives nearby. We tested them for moisture, using the usual meter, and determined the space to be moisture free. I was more than pleased since I had gone to great lengths to find an appropriate space. If I get my own meter, I won’t even need to spend money on an inspector any more. You never know when you will need such a tool.
