I'm going to vote for Patrick Dobson for Jackson County legislature. Tony says he can't win, but so what. I think I might even give Pat $25.
Here's the deal. Pat and I used to work together. We had a bit of a falling out, I guess you could say. I've said some mean things to him and about him. We haven't talked for years.
But I can say emphatically that he's not the sell-out type. I have not doubt whatsoever that he'd fight for the little guy. Like me, he gets genuinely angry when the game-playing rich snobs continue to run this city and county into the ground for the sake of their own interests.
Personally, I think it's great when impassioned, caring, everyday people decide to get involved in politics. I think this is the sort of thing we should be encouraging instead of poo-pooing. It might be true that Pat doesn't have a chance to win because he's not an in-crowd type. But isn't that all the more reason to get behind him?
