A friend recently went to see a famous person give a talk. Someone in the audience raised their hand and said, I watch the news and it all just feels so overwhelming, I feel paralyzed, what can I do?
The famous person said 3 words: Run for something.
I always said I’d never run for office. Things change.
Voters go to the polls here in 9 days. This is the last ad I’m running, and I hope people will remember me in the voting booth, the only woman and most qualified (by far) in a race of 4 candidates.
It starts, “We, the people” for a reason. If you don’t run for office, other people will. There is “good trouble” to be had. I encourage you to run for something.
