When I first ran for office in 1989, I won that first election by a mere 200 votes out of 17,000 votes cast. I informed my campaign team that we were starting our reelection campaign the day after I took office. As mayor, I worked with many other politicians and was totally surprised by how many of them never prepared for their reelection campaign until they filed their petitions. I explained to many of them that they needed to put on programs and events between election cycles to help them get reelected. Any incumbent officeholder who wants to increase their odds of winning their reelection, will find dozens of simple programs and events that they can put on and get positive publicity from doing so. This book will give you program after program that you can put on. Some of them will cost money but some of them you can do completely free and even the free ones will get you positive recognition from the public and in many cases, the news media. If you are one of those politicians who think that just because you stay late at the office every night and work your fingers to the bone between election cycyles, that you will assure your next reelection, you are deluding yourself and you might just get the surprise of your life in your next reelection campaign. follow some of the advice in this book and it will definitely increase your odds of winning your next reelection. It helped me win both of my reelection campaigns for mayor by record margins.

When I wrote my first political book, "How to Run for Local Office," I had always intended to revise the book and title it "How to Run for Local Office...And Stay There." However, as I received e-mails from around the country about how people had used my first book to get elected to office, they requested that I write a book about how to get reelected to public office.
"How to Stay in Public Office" is the result of those many requests from my readers. I decided there was more than enough material for a complete book and I believe that "How to Stay in Public Office" will help any officeholder remain in office for as long as they want. As far as I know, it is the first book of it's kind and I hope you have as much fun reading it as I had writing it.
Robert J. Thomas Author of "How to Stay in Public Office"
