Q & A

Sort of adding on to Vicki’s question.  Would you ever consider running for public office, whether on your local school board, city council, state legislature, or heading to Washington?

    • Not that I’m not capable of being in any of those positions, but I wouldn’t chose to do so.

    • Annie, I disagree, I don’t think it takes egomania, just a very sincere desire to make a difference, which each one of us here is capable of doing.

      I was just thinking this afternoon, if we all ran for office, how much change we could accomplish.

    • I was nominated to our local planning board when a seat became vacant. I was then nominated to be put on the ballot and won. The town I live in is so far removed from moving forward and accomplishing things that I finally decided not to run again. We had a great board who worked well together and we spent hours working on updating old by laws and trying to move the town forward only to be shot down by the majority of voters at the meetings we were required to have to pass the new laws.frown

    • It’s funny another Fab Cindy Stewart Penkoff she worked in her local government as she wanted change and I gather she got it
      I think if you work on a local level you can achieve change and I do think more local / normal people during this time will step up to the plate

    • I do think for some it’s about ego but not for all.  

      I’d be kicked off any board though as my truth would be loud and most likely rude! lol

    • Tracy, sometimes that’s what it takes.  I serve on a board where we have a guy who is loud and sometimes rude, and quite honestly, we appreciate that quality in him.

    • Hell yeah, and I am by no means an ego-maniac, just would love to see things run differently in my area.  We seem to have a lot of complacency and people rarely get involved..as a matter of fact I was key in helping to place a stop sign at the end of our street as many maniac drivers would just race recklessly...also tried to close down a local strip club (yes, in a residential neighborhood) but was told to stay clear as it is run by the mob.

    • If more people would get involved, it might actually help local legislature.
