GET TO KNOW TEAM RATLIFF: Head Speechwriter NICOLE DRESPEL
Episode Four of our continuing series of “webisodes” about the people who work behind the scenes on the RATLIFF 35/2012 campaign focuses on head speechwriter Nicole Drespel.
Nicole is one of the sharpest and most positive people on my campaign staff. She single-handedly wrote my 37th Birthday Speech, which I delivered to an early morning crowd of onlookers in the great state of Alaska just over a month ago. I can’t wait to read what she comes up with for my acceptance speech, which I hope is just filled with a series of zingers.
On October 15, you can see Nicole along with footage of me delivering speeches she wrote in the film OLD ENOUGH TO BE PRESIDENT: Connor Ratliff’s 35-Year Journey To The White House at 92YTribeca, and there will be a Q&A after the film where I will be answering questions along with most of my campaign staff.
Typically, election documentaries wait until AFTER the election is over, but this is one campaign film that actually has the guts to deliver the goods almost a month early.
