Vince made a good point this morning on Newstalk (KSGF) about Doug Burlison deserving a seat on City Council considering how much he has done for the City as a concerned citizen.
I'll have to shoot VDJ an email later and let him know that JackeHammer is pronounced JACK-hammer. No biggie. He's been nice enough to mention me on his radio show a couple of times lately. Now I'll have to watch myself and try to write worthy thangs, I guess. ;)
I've been planning on voting for Burlison anyway. I had the pleasure of interviewing him for an article I hope will be published in the next edition of Community Free Press. I had him in my home. My husband and I visited with him on our back deck and we talked for about two hours.
Doug has a lot of plans on how to effect change in our City and makes a great deal of sense. I won't go into all of that now because I spent a considerable amount of time and energy writing an article about it for publication. If for whatever reason the CFP chooses not to publish the article in their April 11 issue, I'll post it here.
Anyway, instead of reading blogs today go out, get some sun on your skin and vote, vote, vote!
I've also been doing battle with this strange intestinal virus that's been going around. Between working on the Burlison article, trying to recuperate and being a bit hard to get along with among local bloggers I haven't been good for much, including blogging.
I didn't want to let the day go by without encouraging everyone to get out and vote today, though. Vote for change. Vote for Burlison.
