SW: Welcome!

Hello, and welcome to SourceWatch and its Congresspedia project. I'm Avelino Maestas, the assistant managing editor of Congresspedia. Thanks so much for your additions to Fred Dailey' page - I think people in Ohio will find them valuable. I wanted to let you know I performed some copyediting within the page, and moved some unsourced information -- written in the first person -- to the article's discussion page. We ask that you include a reference for information added to Congresspedia, and that you refrain from writing from perspective of the candidate (even if you are the candidate). That keeps Congresspedia a respected and accurate source of information for voters. For more information, please check out our guide for campaigns.

If you would like, you can copy and paste the information back into the profile page, ensuring to include a citation and removing any first-person references. Let me know if I can help - my contact information is at the end of this message.

If you're from Ohio, you may find the Ohio Congresspedia portal interesting - it lists every candidate and incumbent from the state. If you'd like to report who has filed endorsements in the congressional races, we have an instruction page here.

Another thing people are participating in right now is adding each member of Congress' record on recent controversial votes. The Congresspedia staff wrote up some great summaries of the votes and you just have to look up how any member voted and fill in some blanks. Full details are here. Thanks again, and if you need any help you can consult the quick guide to editing, leave a message on my talk page or email me at this page.
