It’s official…I am now a precinct committeeman (woman, whatever!). My first official act of business was to appoint Andrew my vice-precinct committeeman. On Saturday, I was named to the position by the Chairman of the Hendricks County Republican Party.
My youngest sister thinks this is not a good thing and that I should not succumb to a mainstream party but should become a Libertarian (I explained that this was not possible as I don’t agree with them on some very important issues) or an Independent. I informed her that I was going to try and make a difference in the GOP by helping plan the best political events & parties ever! (JK)
Anyway, I will be up for election in May 2008 so I have a couple years to plan my campaign strategy for this obviously highly coveted office. :) I serve in Lincoln Township. So, if you want to work the polls, pass out literature, meet the candidates (okay, not yet), register voters, vote as a deceased person so you can vote more times :), or anything else political, let me know. I get my ideas from Julia Carson…now that’s a real-life political heroine for today. :)
Seriously though, I look forward to serving the county in this way. This is my return to politics after several years of nothing…oh, I did vote sometimes. :)
