Eric, you have so much to say about everything.....why are you not running for office? Seriously? Why not?

If Eric ran, I would vote for him. He appears to not have a hidden agenda and is not a builder/realtor/developer/investor.

First let me apologize for being all over the place on Patch. I'm sure it does become annoying after while. And yes its better to do something other than complain. Its just a big commitment and I don't have that much money to put into it. Sadly it does take money to run. And I wonder too if the citizens of this town are ready for change or are as aware of the need for it as I am. I talked to an old friend this morning who is encouraging me to stay in the fight and to try to make a difference. That's all any of us can do. So I'm going to circulate a petition. If enough people sign it I'll run. I'm not in it for me, but if there are enough people in this town that want me to run, I'll do the best I can do for all of us. Thanks for the encouragement. I needed it.

I'm on a thread announcing the candidacy of someone else so I'm not going to say more about it here. I'll put something out on Patch soon.
