As I contemplate the possibility of running for a seat with the Alamo Colleges again, I will be posting my thoughts on my previous runs for office. It has been a hit and miss adventure for me, winning obscure offices with the City of San Antonio and the local Democratic Party, and losing other positions with the Alamo Colleges and the North East Independent School District.
I really do believe the two elections lost were very winnable, but there were numerous issues with my own lack of motivation at times and continual organization issues that worked against me. I will also say that both Charlie Connor and Sandy Hughey were both strong incumbent candidates and are also good public officials in the communities they serve.
The next couple to several weeks we’ll see if I run for election next year, in 2012, or even walk away from being a candidate for office at all for the next several years.
