Robert Goluba was born and raised in Central Illinois, where he attended college, served in the Army National Guard, and met his wife. At age thirty, after a self-diagnosed allergy to snow, he moved to sunny Gilbert, Arizona, where he now lives with his beautiful wife and two daughters.
In Judgment Day, the first story in the Hope Refreshed Collection of Modern Parables, party campaign manager John choose to run a clean campaign to bring trust and integrity back to the party. His nemesis and mudslinger Brian jumped into the race and turned John's plans upside down. John wants to stay the course, but the poll results from the first debate indicate that may not be possible. What will John do next?
John was sure the voters would see through Brian’s ways and was waiting on the first polls the morning after the debate. He was so certain Brian would be trailing badly that he yelled, “No way!” when he saw the results. Brian had jumped to second place behind the front-runner, Maya Chopra, and was a full ten points ahead of Andrew Newman, who was now third. John could not believe it. Not only were his assumptions on the debate results wrong, but now he also second-guessed his whole strategy for a clean campaign. He knew others felt the same way and would be calling him soon to voice their dissatisfaction.
