Do you have any interest in serving as a local elected official?

You gotta be wealthy to do that. And besides, I'd be too busy telling people who piss me off to go fuck themselves.

I think I would be bored. I was, however, treasure of a condo association for 19 years. Unpaid, of course.

Maybe, in the future once I’m earning a true career paycheck and I’ve actually stayed in an area long enough to get to know the local town/city enough to properly represent the populace.

No. Political offices are stalked by too many haters!

The only thing I’ve ever even briefly entertained is running for the local school board. But I don’t know if I have the energy to mount a campaign.

No way. My local political scene is a worse swamp than Washington. I'm far too capable of telling the truth about the sacred cows on both sides of the aisle to get the support of either.

Yes. I doubt I’d ever get elected by these uneducated useful idiots though.

Really bad actually, but I’ll never be “educated” enough

Yes. Libertarianism needs to propagate.

I have been told I should, but there is too much dirt in my past.

I’d say don’t. School board members take a lot flack for things that aren’t their fault. You would be better served going into administrative positions

I've been a teacher for 30 years and would have some great insight.

Oh for sure. I just think it’s a position that turns ugly fast

No. There are enough privileged white men in places of power.

Lol. You keep yourself from doing what you want and being successful because you don't like your race 😂

I couldn't be successful, because my political goals prioritize the empowering of non-white peoples.

you shouldnt be deciding on whether or not to run based on something so out of your control as your skin color

Sorry Dave. You should have thought about that before becoming a white male

None whatsoever. I'm too blunt, terse, and principled to be a politician of any kind.

I've thought about it. I would like to do it, I dont think I'd be popular. But isn't that the point?

I very briefly considered challenging my local state senator (who was also my former boss when I was in high school) for the GOP nomination. But decided against it since i don’t have the money to really mount a strong campaign. The senator eventually decided to not even run again & He was appointed by President Trump to serve as the Director of the US Selective Service System. My local state rep who is popular ran for the open seat he left. And he won by a decent margin. Everything worked out in the end!

But now I don’t have any desire to be in politics. It’s a shit show most days

I'm considering a city council or mayoral bid in 2020 in Grand Forks.

I'm guessing the county offices are all the way in Tacoma, so no. It would have to be a much more interesting job than county muckety-muck to be worth going into the city during county business hours.
