It is DONE!

I filed my petitions for Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner 7C04.  (Big hugs and shoutouts to neighbors who enthusiastically signed the petitions AND took them to neighbors for me!) 

I am a second-termer; I've come back for more.  But why?  I'm being honest, why do I: take the let down of 10 residents coming to a meeting or deal with getting chewed out or contend with the push-and-pull called getting service from OUR government??  WHY, WHY, WHY?  Because:

5) Hmm... Hold on! I'm still thinking...
4) I'm a glutton for punishment.
3) I like being the center of attention.
2) I'm an overachiever.
1) Helping people understand we can make things better for ourselves is pretty gratifying.

Don't talk about it!  Be about it!  Join me (or your nearest Advisory Neighborhood Commission) in making government work with us and for us.

Mom, "If everyone was jumping off a bridge, would you do it?"
Me, "Noooo!  Dang..." (aloud)

Me, "Well, if the cool kids said it was ok, maybe..." (in my head)

Fast forward xx years, the cool kids say it's ok to follow the herd & Get on the list for The BIG reveal!
