a wee bulletin

Folks, it seems I am running for public office. Not the U.S. Senate or anything, just my town school committee. Hoping to improve my little corner of my little corner of the world.

I mention it because this blog is only semi-anonymous, and it is certainly possible that hoards (humor me) of potential voters would come across and scour it for evidence of my suitability for election. However, I'm going to keep school committee issues out of it. I won't campaign here, and if I'm elected, this site will not be a source of news or information about school committee goings-on. It may have a piece about how it feels to me to run for office (hint: buy stock in Rolaids, friends), but it won't be anything specific. Noted and Blogged will continue to consist of reflections on family life, the news of the day, and whatever else comes along that I feel like writing, such as reviews of movies you've already seen.

We now return to your regularly scheduled program, already in progress.


  1. Good luck. I've had many positive dealings with school board members over the years. They are the best kind of people giving of their time and effort to the community. A few have "personal or personnel agendas" stay away from that. :)

  2. Thank you troutbirder.

    That is excellent advice.

  3. Yay!!! Someone with courage of conviction. There are those who when asked step up to the plate, they make the world turn. Good luck. I sat on a board for parochial school for 3 years, and it was always $$$$, and trying to keep it alive, I suspect yours will be that too, except bigger $$$$. Don't take the criticism that comes with it to heart. Take the idea stated in my first sentence.

  4. Thank you Packer - more good advice!

    It doesn't feel like courage at the moment. I'm all nerves!

  5. Good luck, and I'm glad your going to stick to your tried and true MO.

    The URL for my new blog is
    Still getting it tidied up, but it should be there in a day or two.

  6. are already learning the ropes...

  7. I heard a whisper on the wind that said you have a seat ? Yes ?
