I wish you all the best, I really do. It's amazing to see someone from here run for office.
Now, I'll be blunt. Linking yourself to this website and posting your real face on it is the worst thing you could have done if you were planning to run for office. There is so much reprehensible material here that making yourself known as a poster will by proxy paint you in the same light, in the media.
I'm sorry but that's that truth. ATS is a secret hobby, not a resume bullet point.
With that said, good luck man! You could actually make a difference for some people.

Good for you!
I wish you every success in your endeavour. You might well be a stubborn, bloody minded cuss, but you are exactly the sort of stubborn bloody minded cuss that would do a good job representing your community on a wider stage, so I hope you smash the competition and gain the position you are after taking. Better you than some hack who has never lived a real life, or wanted for anything. Bravo, and good luck!

BEWARE POLITICAL SHENANIGANS AGAINST YOU
I've held local office in the past.
The CRAP the opposition pulled was disgusting...Fortunately, I beat their A$$.
