My one question turned into four: 1. Do you support homeschooling? 2. Do you support families having chickens? 3. Name three books you have read that you feel have helped prepare you for this event in your life? And 4. Would you attend a cottage meeting in my home?
Here are the answers:
Don Allphin: Don is out of town and sent his son Mark to read a statement for him. Mark took my questions and will ask his dad about the three books and the homeschooling but did indicate that his father supports the chicken ordinance. Mark said his father would attend a meeting in my home.
Steven Clark: Supports Homeschooling, is pro chickens, would come to my home, and said McCullough's Truman and Adams along with a book on Oppenheimer (he invented the atomic bomb) as his books. This guy has been involved with state and federal legislatures, his wife is Cindy Clark on the current City Council Board.
Ammon Cunningham: A no show
John Curtis: He said he's pro homeschooling but his wife is President of the Provo school board. Well I guess I can't hold that against him. Pro chickens, pro cottage meetings, and finally someone said they had read Beck's Common Sense, and a leadership book by Rudy Giuliani. But no third book...It would appear this is the man with the money right now, color brochures, shirts. Interesting...bty, he is the only runner who brought his wife.
Neil Mitchell: Very pro homeschooling, pro chickens, pro cottage meetings. Doesn't like the turn over in the Lakewood subdivision area. He realizes he doesn't have all the answers but wants to try and help his community. I think this will be a hard win for him but I'm glad he is stepping forward and trying. Three books; The Forgotten Man, 1776, biography of Ronald Reagan.
Andrew Thompson: a big no show
The bee lady I spoke to yesterday about these feeling of change coming my way attended the meeting too even though she is in a different district.
One last thing. I learned that within the City Counsel there are 5 district members and two city wide members. This Fall, there are 6 people running for one of the city wide slots.
You should go out and find a first experience for yourself. Just make sure it's virtuous and safe.
