Well, I've jumped in and filed.
I'm running for District 2 of the Quorum Court in Carroll County, Arkansas.
Wish me well...and
if you're in the state, I'd love to have your endorsement...pm me for info on that!
Sure, if you want to donate to my campaign, let me know and I'll give you all the particulars for both paypal and snail mail.
is my first as a candidate...we'll see if I'm electable.
Thanks for the well wishes and I'll be sure and keep a "diary" about it all...wow, isn't that what the journal thing is all about? Maybe I'll try that. Hummm, I don't see the journal button. Is it gone now that I could use it?
with a green "+" beside it.
Wishing you the very best!
I'm not in Arkansas either, although I think it is a beautiful state. I wish you lots of luck.
And as to that journal, you will see the "add to my journal" box to check whenever you start an OP. That way, you can keep us all up to date on your progress. And invite us to your election day celebration!
That may be a good sign.
Not this one.. but...
Mine is a little more animated and has different coloring but basically the same...
I ran for the Kansas State House in 2004. Lost, but it was the most amazing thing I've ever done. More people should run for office.

You are brave! And I send you cyber hugs and smiles. This is what it takes -- folk who have hope and vision and are willing to step up. I wish you well -- very well in fact. Please post again as the campaign moves along.
It should be interesting and I'll try to keep up my journal.
Just thought I'd give you some practice for what's ahead.
And good luck.
How could a body refuse such a sweet deal. My campaign will only cost a couple thousand, but your generous offer will be remembered for a long time to come Thanks I need the practice!
You win no personal prize, but the fight for democracy goes on!
Thank you for the money and thank you for your emotional support!
that my error had been corrected. I'm putting it on GD tomorrow after I verify my bank account and all know all is well. I'm excited. I filed my financial papers today. Must find journal button so I can add this memorable moment of exposing my financial secrets.
When I ran I posted there and the DU came through for me.
MAY 20, 2014: Arkansas - Primary Election election day?
Election day here is November 4th and I do have an opponent. This is a local race and I don't think it will take more than a couple of thousand to reach all my constituents, but it is more than I have!
I have to get all my information straightened out, I sent out an incorrect email account name a couple of days ago, and I'm certainly grateful THAT wasn't on GD! lol
But, I'm going to write a journal, even if it's only a couple of sentences to cover the day.
