4. Proud of you duhneece

I've been in local government as both a staffer and elected official for over 40 years...

Presently I am a County Board Supervisor with 9 years tenure (elected 4 times) and a City Alderman with 11 years tenure (elected 5 times) at the same time.

We've had two of the last three Mayoral elections where nobody opposed the Mayor.

Out of the 19 County Supervisor seats only ONE ran with opposition

Out of the 10 Alderman seats only ONE ran with opposition.

The fact that you put yourself out there to run even in a district that was heavily stacked against you is praiseworthy in all regards. Maybe you could set your sights on a lower level office and work your way up once you get a reputation and name recognition.

Whatever path you choose, I wish you the best.
