• Several people who are contemplating running for office have contacted me recently, seeking advice on how to win an election. The best advice I have to give them is to get involved, stay involved and become informed. There you have it in a nutshell.
• Along the same lines, I hope the man who contacted me a week or two ago about running for the legislature will call me back. I must not have the correct phone number.
• I heard on the radio that the recession is over so it MUST be true (she says, sarcastically.) I sincerely HOPE it’s over and I WANT it to be over, but I will believe it when I see it.
• Yes, I do plan to run for the office of governor; however, I have not made a formal announcement just yet. Why run? As a current county commissioner, I am seeing how much state laws and mandates are impacting us here at the county level.
As governor, I would be able to have a stronger influence on the state laws that impact county taxpayers and local governments. As a Republican, I believe that in most cases, decisions made at the local level tend to better serve the public.
