Filed to Run for Re-Election to Village Board This Week

I filed my election paperwork at the Morrill County (Nebraska) Elections Office this week to run for re-election to the Broadwater Village Board (city council) in November. As village trustees in Broadwater are unpaid, there is no election filing fee.

I had everything wrong when I ran in the special election here to fill the seat of a board member who passed away in October of 2012. Id only lived in town a couple years in a town where families have lived for generations, a liberal in a deeply conservative state, an open atheist in a deeply religious state, and hair down to my waist. I even wear a fedora when everyone else in the county (even women) wears cowboy hats, and drive a Smart rather than a pickup truck (sometimes tricky on our sand roads when it rains).

Nevertheless, I was elected unanimously in 2012 over four other candidates.

The other members of the village board (despite all being rather conservative) urged me to file, as did several members of the community.

Broadwater has a population of 128, with about seventy registered voters. It is one of three incorporated towns in Morrill County, Nebraska.

1. Which proves, yet again, that leftists can't win elections.

Wait, what did you say?

Kidding aside, very best wishes.
