Yes, Regis, that’s my final answer.

I’ve considered running for a seat on our board of commissioners off and on for many years now. I know I’d make a good board member; I do my homework and show up prepared, and I won’t go along to get along.

I also recognize that aside from those qualities, I make a terrible candidate. The list of reasons why is longer than I wish to bore you with today, but that’s the truth.

I will NOT be a candidate for any office in this town this year or any time in the foreseeable future.
