Campaign Update: Ryan Meili

Video Link: LINK

Ryan Meili's campaign has put out a new video, exploring Ryan's past run at the leadership; the launch of his current run, and what he's been up to between the two points.

It's an interesting video, and an interesting approach, as it highlights Ryan as a person rather than as a politician. This is a similar tactic taken by Cam Broten, who launched his own 'Getting to Know Cam' videos shortly after he entered the leadership race. LINK

I've talked about personality before on this blog, and the need of for the next leader to have that certain "je nes sais quoi" factor to successfully take on Brad Wall's own cult of personality, and it's good to see some of the leadership candidates wading into pool of defining themselves. The Federal Liberals have shown how dangerous it is to let your leader linger too long with being undefined to the general public, and we've seen the SK Party already attempt to define all four candidates with a broad brushstroke, so it's good to know that the candidates are fully conscious of the need to explain who they are and what they stand for right out of the gate.
