Think You Can Improve Things? This Is Your Shot

Personally, I've never thought of running for a board seat or other office because it’s hard enough just running 3 kids to their appointments. Also, just because something isn’t for me, doesn’t mean it isn’t exactly the right thing for you. The real question is, will your involvement benefit others?

Now's The Time

According to the Bell County elections page, you may file for office from now until February 17th, 2023. Filing is just the beginning. Then comes the real work of letting the voters know why they should pick you to serve them.

Service to the Community is Key

Serve is the other important part. It’s easy to lose sight of your responsibility to others when given what may be considered even the lightest wielding of power. Public office isn’t for everyone, but it’s always great whenever we do what we can.

Who would you like to see run for public office? Have you ever encouraged them to do so? Do you think that person is you?
