I'VE BEEN ASKED several times if I'd be interested in filing for Ward 7 alderman.
On the one hand, I'm intrigued. There are some things I feel strongly about and that we need to address in our area of town.
On the other, I have no major issues with our current representation. And I'd have to go to meetings. I hate meetings, you know.
And I'd have to actually learn what a tax levee or levy or whatever it is, is. And I'd get a new cellphone and I'd have to learn how to turn it on.
I hate politics. I think we stay away from it at the local level, to a degree. Owning a small business is complicated enough.
And I couldn't run as a Democrat or Republican. Ick. I need to take a shower after just thinking about it. I'd run as an independent, which means I'd be up against money and organized people.
Nah. I'm good.
