Did I Mention I was Running to Serve in Public Office?
Did I mention that I was on the ballot to serve in the office of State Representative? No. Well, it's true. Those of you who have enjoyed reading me complaining about it for years can now help me do something about it. I am running as an Independent. I'll answer only to the people who elect me, not party bosses. Here is the link to my campaign website. The district is small enough that I don't think a party label is necessary anyway. Political parties are necessary for people who have aspirations for big offices, not citizens content to serve in the state legislature.
The website establishes a more complete 'feeling tone' about who I am than even years of reading Arkansas Watch might do. And the donate button works well too, hint hint. If you are an Arkansas resident, the first $50 of donations is free to you because of the Arkansas Political Contributions Tax Credit. So if its a choice between giving it to the state government or giving it to the candidate of your choice, why not send it to the candidate? If you have enjoyed this online space I set up, I invite you to help me win this race, which I should think would only make things even more interesting around here.
