Thought for your weekend: This is the time of year when nomination papers get taken out for spring elections. I have had a bit of involvement with trying to recruit people to run in local elections (which are non-partisan). It’s tougher than it may sound to get people to run.
The vast majority of local incumbents will again be unopposed in our area. I would venture to guess that will also be true statewide.
Have you ever thought about running for a local office? Maybe your local school board, city council, or county board? What has held you back from running? Why do you think more people do not choose to run?
