Prayers are with you Mr. Mayor. Bust of luck. I hope this won't get in the way of woodworking.

Thanks.. I'm going to try my best to keep my butt covered.



Mr gimpy thanks for your prayers and I don't think there is such a job that will keep me from my shop. I'll have to manage both.

Thanks everybody for all your kind words and prayers.

Wanted to fill everybody in on how the campaign is going. So far I'm leading in the poles. I didn't realize that I had this many friends. Everybody but one man has told me that they will vote for me. The other guy was the mayors brother. I think that I have a really good chance at winning this. I read Proverbs 19:20 this morning and it really stuck with me. Thanks everybody for saying a prayer for me and wishing me good luck.

If you get elected... My condolences! (Yup - A JOKE). But seriously, public service, is an incredibly serious and rewarding and frustrating endeavor.

KUDOS for you wanting to "Make a difference!" Best wishes.

The election is June 6th..

I tried running for a seat on the school board. The day before I was going to file the paperwork, I had a heart attack. That taught me to avoid politics.

I've got to change my answer to this. The election is normally the first Tuesday in June. But this time everybody ran democrat. So the election is May 2nd. Yep a little over a week and a half. I still fill really good about winning the election. I think it was the work that I put into this and the prayers of all of this forum. Once I get elected I'll have 2 months before I take over.

Thanks,
