A friend has pointed out that there is an opening for a challenger to Lile Gibbons, representative for the 150th State District. Now, there’s no way I’d drive to Hartford, ever, but a campaign premised on a promise never to set foot in the Capitol might have broad appeal. Nothing good happens there, so I could stay down here and fight the lonely fight to protect Greenwich from the Hartford Marauders. Hell, Gibbons accomplishes nothing with all her commuting, could I do worse from here? Not a chance – the 180 minutes she spends driving I could spend fighting. And it would fill up some of that free time I’ll have as tax collector.
My motto: “If nominated, I will run. If elected, I shall not serve.” Imagine if our entire Legislature took a similar pledge – Connecticut would be on the road to economic recovery within days.
Apparently I need just 44 signatures to get on the ballot. Just think of the fun we could have at campaign debates!
