Question: Which HBOer Would Be A Good Politician?

Hmmm: If Dang lives in Rick Currie’s district, he would have a good shot at a seat on the county commission in a year or so. :)

Bent: DanG, seriously, you should give it some thought. I honestly have have met very people who have the passion that you seem to have for local politics. In fact, very few of the elected local politicians have the passion that you do. You know, municipal elections are up next year. By winning a council seat, you could ask the council to appoint you to LCDC board and make the changes that you would like to see happen. Also, you would be able to participate in the Executive Sessions that are required of public entities for land acquistion, legal and personnel issues. It would be a heck of an education.

DanG: Bent: Thanks! Complex issues, indeed. Probably made a lot less complex if they’d stop hiding in Executive Session… Honestly, I don’t know if my butt could take local office. I see the City Council on TV sitting there for hours. Damn! I admire those people for A) being able to “hold it”, B) Concentrate, C) Not fidget, and best of all D) stay awake and focused. Impressive! Hmmm: I’m not in Currie’s district. :( I’m in Rich Piazza’s district, and I remind him of it often. :)

Question: Who has the best potential among the current HBO crowd to be an office holder?
