Another race without a horse

At least for me.

19-year-old John Weber is running for 24th District State Assembly as a Republican.

Fox 6 (which, y'know, I watch because of Nicole Koglin, Rene Banot and Mark Concannon's shirts), did a story on him this morning. In it, Weber said his main reason for running was that his opponent, Suzanne Jeskewitz, has run unopposed for the last 8 years. When asked about this, Jeskewitz said that wasn't a very good reason to run for office.

WHAT?!?!?!? THAT'S A FREAKIN' EXCELLENT REASON!

People may forget about this, what with the Kennedys, Clintons and, yes, even the Bushes, having become the very royalty George Washington and gang hoped to oppose, but governance in this country wasn't intended to be manned by a select few turning it into a family business. Candidates like Weber are nipping it in the bud rather than letting it turn into a decades-old debacle nobody can get out of.

If you're in the 24th district, vote Weber, if for nothing else than this kid actually understands what representative government is all about.

By the way...still haven't heard from Jim Ott...

To be fair--

Do you know Weber's platform?

I kinda like the fact he's taking on that RINO witch--but what's he wanna do when he wins?

He's got the standard Repub platform...at this level it seems there's very little differentiation from one candidate to the next. I was more impressed by the fact that he wants to keep an elected official on their toes rather than coasting.
