So, common sense would dictate leaving this section blank, but we care to turn it off when we feel like it. It’s part of the whole “greater good” thing. Everyone at Donehue Direct gets one of these, and we’re all about equal opportunities- not equal results. That’s the pure Conservative ideal in action.
So, meet Wesley. If you know Donehue Direct, he’s the first part of that name-brand, and one part of the dynamic Donehue duo that helps innovate politics on a daily basis. This whole idea which is now quickly becoming a movement is the brainchild of Wes, and it’s getting better than ever.
Born on a political starship somewhere slightly outside the Alpha-quadrant, Wesley has made a career out of energizing campaigns, funding Starbucks, and picking apart the Klingon creation myth piece by piece. Some argue that his homeland of South Carolina can be slightly outside of the Alpha quadrant at times as well, which makes his vision for the future- and his operations all the more successful.
One of the subtle truths is that he’s a natural born worker. Controversy tends to come from many directions, but even his most charged opponents have to respect the work ethic that’s made his vision a reality. Wes has his game face, and also lets the tie undone from time to time. His drive to frame politics as a fun workable hobby is a sharp contrast from the past- and we’re certain that it will be successful in the future. It better be, or we’ll be working down at the Cookout. Yum…
We can have fun, play around, and be creators of the new political dynamic as long as deadlines are met. Sometimes they aren’t, and we experience the Wrath of Khan. But the success generally outpaces the failure, and together we create dreams. It’s all part of the ride.
So, we did get to holler at this busy, busy man and learn a thing or two about what drives him, and we hope you’ll enjoy:

Best memory working here?
Getting recognized as GOP Innovator of the Year by Campaigns and Elections Magazine. That was an important and meaningful thing for me.

Well, you certainly are the strobe light to our party. When folks wanna be fun-sponges, you turn up the tech(no) and blast seizure inducing light-rays of political action. Politics is a passion for this office, and Wes is the ultimate enabler. Where this dream will go from here, who knows. But one thing is for certain, the environment is changing and Wes knows it. Donehue Direct is stepping up and making things happen.
