Well, here it is... my first quasi-official announcement that I intend to run for mayor of Bristol, Connecticut.
So, why am i running?
Hmm. Good question. In short, I'm running in the spirit of the movie "Brewster's Millions." just call me none of the above.
I don't believe government should be run by professional politicians - at any level. I believe myself, an average Bristol resident, would make just as good a candidate as anyone else. I propose that someone with NO political experience who has never attended a meeting at city hall can do a better, more thoughtful, and more grounded job running the city of Bristol than someone who is part of the political machine here.
More about me:
I am in my 30's.
I have lived in Bristol since first grade, and attended public school here.
I commuted to college while working full time, and graduated in 2000.
I have been a Bristol homeowner for about 8 years.
I am married but have no children.
I have no criminal record.
I've worked the past 10 years in a supervisory/middle management type role.
Unfortunately I am also a recent layoff victim.
I have not published my name... because it isn't important. my ideas are. you probably don't know me anyway. But you will...
Constructive comments and questions are more than welcome, as are offers of assistance from anyone who wants to help make Bristol a better place. (If you aren't going to be constructive and just want to be a jackass, I expect that too. ;)
