Be kind to the people who support you. Give them glances at construction projects with updates included. Include short video walk through, reminders of costs and features, and exactly how this fits in the overall strategy.
It helps people remember what they are supporting and what the value is locally. It also reminds them that you are employing many more people for these construction jobs, thus having a tremendous impact on the community workforce.
Even if the project isn’t publicly funded completely, give updates to people to keep them current.
Where words and numbers can boggle you down, use pictures as a simple visual reminder.
And remember to say, “Thank you.”
