I've been off the board for almost 4 years now; somehow I still look at local government and often wince at what I see.
So I have decided to become active in politics again. This time, I'm running for Oneida County Legislator to represent the 16th district, which is the southern part of New Hartford and all of the towns of Paris and Bridgewater.
I hope to use this blog for 2 purposes: One, to get my message out with my positions on local governmental decisions and the real impact they may have upon all of us, and two, to tell some of the stories (some humorous, some sad) that I've encountered along the way.
Feel free to leave comments agreeing or disagreeing with my positions. I will make all of them public, except for those that don't meet with normal standards of decorum.
