An Exploratory Committee

It's time for a change.

It's a new day in Downtown.

... so I'm still working on the slogans. but the long and the short of it is I'm thinking of running for county commission. I know I missed the primary, but that's the beauty of running as an independent.

My motivation is basically two things, one i think county commission is broken and two I don't think people who are running as a representative of national political parties are necessarily focusing on the local issues.

I have a number of causes, downtown development, the removal of the Redflex red-light cameras, and of course the children. What I'd really like is a little feedback.

Is there an interest in an independent candidate for downtown, and can I find enough people to sign the 25 person petition to get my name on the ballot.

Please let me know. Yea or Nay.

The Pol '08 District 1A.

hmmm. what kind of campaign promises can you give me? i, personally would like to be assured that you will fight for a stipend from the local government for anyone living in your district.

I'll sign your petition.

do you really want to throw a political campaign on top of your loft renovation? and when are you going to help me with my house if you do this?!
that being said, i think it's an excellent idea. campaign committee meeting at the cigar shop after work? followed by a dinner at the gastropub, of course.

I'll sign it, despite knowing nothing about you, not even your real name. That's how I roll.

I'll vote for you. But only because I like you. Actually, that's not the only reason. You would be good at it too I think.
