Today I registered as a candidate for the Alpharetta City Council post 4 seat. After complaining about politics and politicians for most of my adult life I finally decided that it was time to put up or shut up.
And as any of my regular readers know, shutting up was never really an option.
Looking ahead to the next two months of campaigning I expect it will be exciting, daunting, frustrating and sometimes even rewarding. I don’t know how much of the campaign I will be able to share on these pages but fear not… the GA Jim blog will survive.
Best of luck Jim. We may not see eye-to-eye on every issue but I admire your effort and willingness to get involved and make a difference!
Congrads Jimmy. This is exciting news for Alpharetta residents and business owners.
Congratulations! Breath of fresh air!
good luck Jim, I enjoy reading your blog and wich you success. I’m a west-sider though, so I guess I won’t be able to vote for you.
Chris- The good news is that Alpharetta elections are city wide… so you can vote for me. And don’t forget to bring your family, your neighbors and anyone else you can find!
