For years I have been urging people to take that extra step.  If they
see something that needs doing to step out there and volunteer to do
it.  That's why over the last thirteen years that we have lived in
Celeste my wife and I have gotten involved in so many different
activities. For years I have been urging people to take that extra step.  If they
see something that needs doing to step out there and volunteer to do
it.  That's why over the last thirteen years that we have lived in
Celeste my wife and I have gotten involved in so many different
activities.

We have been Girl Scout leaders (When our girls were young) and cub
scout leaders when I was asked to help bring the cub scouts back to
Celeste a decade ago.  I have coached soccer (Which I might add is a
sport I detest) and may be the only person you ever met that will
admit to umpiring T-Ball and calling his daughter out twice in one
game.  Spent time coaching girls softball, keeping the books for the
CYSA and running concession stands. 

As my girls got older we got more involved on the political side of
the coin, working as both election clerks and election judge for
several years.  In 2000 I agreed to be precinct chairman for the
Republican party here in Celeste.  In the seven years since then, I
have been involved with several campaigns and worked every election
in one capacity or another.  I am now President of the Hunt County
GOP Club.

During this time I also spent a year as President of the Tri-Counties
Genealogy Society.  I Wrote columns for both of the local papers and
spent a great deal of time trying to influence the way things get
done here in our little corner of Hunt County.

You might ask yourself why in the world am I spending all of this
column space bragging about what I have done in the past.  First, in
my own defense, I would say I am reminding folks, not bragging, and
second, I am trying to lay the foundation for asking for your
support.  I have decided to run for City Council here in Celeste and
am using this time to formally announce it and ask for your
support.
