In 2009 I was hired to build the congressional campaign website of Jim McKelvey.
Mr. McKelvey was seeking the GOP nomination for the 5th district seat of Virginia to the House of Representatives.
The site is built on the Joomla CMS and used the Topaz template from joomlart.com which was selected by the campaign staff. I customized the template and added in numerous items of functionality. Which included:
- User access control levels (public, volunteer, and staff)
- An interactive calendar
- A sliding banner on the main page
- YouTube Video embeds
- A Project Manager
- and many other features.
I wound up working for Jim as a campaign staffer through the Primary in June of 2010.
