I felt spring today. Mulching crews were out in our office complex, the mercury inched above 50 and I took my car to the carwash.
This month also marks the beginning of the next political season. Our county executive will hold a fundraiser on the 22nd and Courtney Watson will hold one on the 25th. Speculation abounds as to what these two are running for next.
The next school board race has started too. This week Corey Andrews announced that he is running for a seat on the board in 2012. Corey had hoped to be selected as the next student member of the board after Alexis Adams leaves this year but failed to make the short list. Presumably that would make him a high school junior. He has reached out to Allen Dyer suggesting they run a "joint campaign". Allen seems to spend a lot of time with high schoolers.
And speaking of Allen Dyer, Tales of Two Cities got credited in this story by Sara Toth in the Columbia Flier and this story by David Greisman in Columbia Patch for breaking the story about his alleged ethics shenanigans. That was nice.
In yet another sign of the beginning of the next political season, our pub politics group will gather tonight at an undisclosed public house in HoCo. We will begin the process of handicapping the races for governor, county executive, and other local races. 2014 is a long way off and lots of things can happen in the meantime but you have to start somewhere.
Laissez les bons temps rouler.
