I trusted my gut: saying to myself that I would run for office made me feel calm inside, saying I wouldn't just made me feel anxious. So, I went down to our county clerk's office, paid my $100 filing fee, signed lots of forms saying I'd run a positive campaign and report all my expenditures and that I really intended to see this through. I proved I was who I said I was, and that I lived in the right place to run for this office. They gave me a big packet of information on what I can and can't do and when to do it by, and now I'm an official candidate. Sometimes, if you want to live in a more sustainable, more aware, greener community, you have to work from within the system, and be one of those that makes the policies. Now I'm off to Colorado for my dad's memorial services and just to be with my family.
