I debated with my wife and kids about running for office again. It does seem to take a bit out of you to run for office and stick yourself out into the public eye, so it wasn't exactly a light decision. What ultimately got me interested in running for office was to have at least somebody who represents the citizens of the west side of Logan, or at least try to add some balance to the list of candidates that I saw.
Running for public office is an interesting experience I would recommend that every citizen have the opportunity to experience at least once in their life. It is a worthwhile experience so far as you do get to express your concerns and people do genuinely listen to you regardless of if they vote for you or not.
