I happen to be running for office in Spring City.
Well- there's the usual litany of reasons; I want to improve things in the town by listening to citizen input, I'd like to specifically improve life for families and their children, and I sure would be happy to help foster a more compassionate atmosphere and enable cooperation within the community.
I don't believe much in stumping or campaigning. If my twelve-odd years in Spring City haven't created enough consensus or recognition to elect me to office right now, I reckon I have a few more years to spend living my life and serving my fellowman through that life before I can be hope to be elected.
If you don't already know, I make my living as a teacher. I work with those society calls 'at-risk' or 'troubled' youth. I have done this for sixteen years or so, and I love it. It's difficult at times, but it's rewarding labor.
I am helping my sweetheart, Diedre, to raise our eight children. We chose Spring City as our home because of associations with residents over the years and a past history in the area through my predecessors. We think we made a pretty good choice.
Pretty much, that's why I would like to participate in our city government.
