Over 120 Votes?
Running unopposed, we were guaranteed our position as Delegate to County Convention. What's interesting is seeing how many votes we got. We would expect them to be identical, but somehow Lauren had 10 more votes than me? Maybe she has a prettier name? Maybe 10 people knew her? It's a mystery!
I still don't know how we managed to receive 120+ votes. Just because our name was on the ballot? Likely.
Even though it's a very small local election, being on the official ballot and on the website results makes it all that much more real. The next step is to fulfill the position by going to county convention later this week, this Thursday.
Jumping into the mess that is politics will be interesting, challenging, hopefully not too emotional. There is already evidence of foul play within the party, establishment types that don't want people like myself and my wife to have a say in Lansing.
Our position is the lowest rung on the lowest ladder, but hey, every little bit, right?
Will we go to Lansing? Will we be able to have a voice in our State's capital? Big and wide-reaching change always begins small and local. We're not world-changers, we're not out for political power or prestige. We just want to accurately represent our district and help give them a voice in how the state is run.
I hope we are able to make positive change for our beautiful State.
Bless the Most High!
