It has become that time of year again. Politicians are making television, radio, and stump appearances. Some are hinting at their running. Others are being far more coy than that. Others still have thrown their hats in the ring of candidacy. So, I have also decided to throw my name in with the rest.

Yes folks, I have been elected. I was elected to the Board of Directors for the Creekside at Preston Home Owners Association. Woohoo!

Well, there’s my sharing.
