    I ran for city council once. There were 12 people running for 3 open seats. I came in 5th.

    Its interesting how Christians complain about our elective officials, yet will not even run for office in an election.

    Some may say "There is no way I can win" Well, I guarantee you wont if you don't. At a minimum, you are giving people a choice, especially when a political runs unopposed.
