Not So Political Political Post About Me

Post by SemperFiUral » Sat Nov 09, 2019 1:21 pm

Not intended to be a political post but wanted to share with everyone I’m running for office! Maybe our first Ural riding politician (except for Putin!). Started off at bottom rung and worked my way up to running 60% of a 600+ employee operation. It’s been my goal since starting with the office 25 years ago. The pooch is happy because he’s going to get plenty of extra rides over the next year!

Who would vote for someone crazy enough to ride a Ural? Or maybe that's why they should vote for you. Hard to say.

Good luck.

I'm 60 years old. In my short time I've seen lots of people move "up the ladder" in various ways. My first reaction to your running for office is No. Don't do it. You WILL become one of them. I don't like politics in general. And yes I've had inside experiences on local, state and national levels. To me government has become somewhat of a necessary evil. I don't know everything. I'm only 60.

I don't know you. Nor your intentions. But as a fellow SS member and enthusiast, it can be a positive to have another enthusiast in office.
Best wishes.

Thanks for all of the well wishes! The office I'm running for is a partisan race but has no business being one - politics shouldn't come into play at the Clerk of Court level. Look forward to celebrating a win in November 2020 with a nice cold Baltika!

Good for you.

Easy to say "that's enough, I can do a better job".
Harder to actually do it. Good Luck and don't let it break your heart.

Why anybody would want to be in politics befuddles me.

Good luck. So if you win, then Ural riders should be able to get speeding tickets fixed in Hillsborough County.... no? Now to figure out how to get a speeding ticket on a Ural.
