    Dang it. Ran as a "good will gesture" planning on being beaten. Nobody even ran against me. No election for school board here in Nov. I just walk in. Like I didn't have anything else to do with my time.........
    My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

    Smile Cool, Spotts

    Speak your mind. Those kids have a big mouth and they can't even take of themselves. My main thing is those that want to learn and are disrupted by the ones that want to be a clown or need attention. Find a class for clowns and children that need attention. I think 75% of the class would like to learn. Do your magic Spotts. Roy

    It will help you in business. If it is between you and "the other guy" people will pick you. "Jack Spotts, yeah, I heard of him."

    Since this is an elected office........

    If one tosses his hat into the ring and no one notices, is he truly elected?

    That's a good move, spotts........although I don't know about where you're at, but around here you'd have to wear a disguise to go to the liquor store from now on.

    Actually, I think Jerry should run for Selectman up thaya in Bennington. Then you two could have a "bored" meeting at the next H-Talk convention.

    HaHa! I typed my name on GOOGLE

    and got........ http://www.fortmorgantimes.com/Stories/0,1413,164~8312~3064263,00.html
    I feel like the line in "The Jerk" where Steve Martin needed the drink with an umbrella in it so he can say "Be Somebody" like the ad he saw. I already like seeing my name in the paper all the time and not under "in the courts". Customers do seem to already know. Got a $9,500 mini-split project from a rich cattle dealer here today that I bid months ago. He says.... "Ya know. I served on the Brush School Board for 12 years......" right off.

    You bring a tear to my eye. This is how I've been doing business for years and I love it.

    Pretty soon we'll be hearing

    "Congresman Spotts" and then
    "Senator Spotts" and then before you know it
    "President Spotts"

    Just remember us little guys when your in the big chair next to the red phone.

    Just think of it as about the same thing as when you were young. Then you were IN THE SCHOOL BORED, now you are ON THE SCHOOL BOARD. Just hope you are still not IN THE SCHOOL BORED.

    good point and thats why you join the lions the kiwans and other community groups to network
    www.vetopropac.com - The best tool bags on the market - The offical tool bag of choice by techs everywhere

    Arguing with some people is like wrestling a pig - eventually you realise the pig actually enjoys it

    Gonads serve a useful purpose but are no substitute for brains
