3rd Times The Charm For Gookin

JohnA: My hat’s off to Dan (Gookin) and to all of the candidates. I have no idea why anyone would want to run for City Council. 750 bucks a month for the beating they take? No thanks. Al told me once that serving on the Council cost him tens of thousands of dollars because the time requirements took him away from his business. Of course, in Dan’s case, I imagine he could always write ‘City Council for Dummies’ during the meetings when the boring stuff is considered. In the meantime, congrats Dan. The third time was truly the charm. :)

Question: Have you ever run for office, at any level, from student body offices to local and beyond? Did you win? If not, did you try again?
