    School board member southsideamy

    Saw it on FB. Looks like the Cybub ticket is doing well in the polling.

    awwww thanks, Veloise. Congrats to Save Matoon, too!

    The common reaction by southside planners is: What? You're signing up for another night meeting?

    Congrats, hon!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Hey Southside, I was at a mutual friend's house last weekend, drinking a little bit, and he didn't mention this. Congratulations!

    Thanks for all the kind words!

    Transplanner: I hope the next step isn't the Governor's mansion -- because the step after that in Illinois is usually jail. Dh is a Canadian, so maybe I should look into the Premiere's mansion? Although, I've always thought that Governor-General job would be a sweet gig.

    Coragus: I don't think it's widely known in our previous town that I was running -- I think most of them imagined me serving on a board like previous town's Board of Education and couldn't believe I'd want to do that!! And now I'm wondering who it was that you were having drinks with?? I'm going back in May for a conference at MSU. I miss our park dates with the monsters.

    What is it a former Chicago mayor once said? 'Only bad things can happen when you run for office: you could lose or you could win.'

    Congratulations and best wishes!

    Congratulations, southsideamy !!!

    I think it was Bear who said, "Any school board with a member of Cyburbia on it will do all the right things."

    Woo-hoo!
