So, yeah, I'm still a-'strolling' for the office of Spring City Councilman.
The races seem to have heated up a bit, with campaign signs popping up here and there, and mailers showing up in PO Boxes. I don't know what to think of this; it seems a bit over-the-top for an election such as ours, though. Words and slogans are lost on me unless they carry the weight of experience, personality, and human feelings. Campaign promises are so much chaff in the wind until such ideals are carried into effect, and who knows what the reality of the office of councilman is until the mantel is donned? Why make promises and shallow statements of purpose with only the weight of blurb and soundbite to back it up?
All we can do is try our best and hope to live up to the history we've built up in our personal lives and collectively in the town. That's what life's all about, after all.
