I am running for Town Council. It's exciting and makes me terribly uncomfortable at the same time.
I actually submitted my application about two hours before the deadline on Monday, April 13th. Luckily it was a short application, or I may have changed my mind. Again.
I really thought it was a low-key election. However, there are signs going up for others and everyone is starting to ask who I am. Apparently, not many people know me in this town of 1,100 people. So, we've been hitting the "campaign trail." We are walking around town in the evenings meeting people and handing out a little bio that Joe typed.
Joe even designed the logo on the back of their shirts.
I had shirts made for Joe and myself. Joe's says "Elect (me) for Town Council" on the front and has the large logo on the back. My shirt says "Running for Town Council" because I'm going to wear the shirts (one red, one blue) when I run through town.
(I even got my hair cut for the occasion. Eight inches ...)
