Well…it’s official. This morning I filed my paperwork and am now an official candidate and will be placed on the November ballot for the position of Watertown Township trustee.

You might ask, “What’s your party affiliation, JC?”

Answer: I am running without party affiliation.
And to be completely honest, I’d like to keep it that way in the future, if possible.
The bookish view (keeping with the theme of this blog!):
If I get elected, which is highly probable due to the fact that I am running unopposed (and the deadline to file is Thursday, July 19th at 4:00p), I’ll be in the market for a new book club as the Oakland University Alumni Association’s Lit to Film Club meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:00p…which just happens to be at the very same day/time as township board meetings. It’s quite disappointing that I won’t be able to attend as it’s something I’ve done and thoroughly enjoyed since September 2008; I am going to really miss the whole group, but especially the amazing Anne Switzer. My civic duty is calling (“Hey, JC! Over here!”)…and the trustee position has been on my radar for quite a few years time now.

Let the hunt for a new book club begin…
