Okay, 2018 candidates, right now I’ll bet you’re feeling a lot like I did after I signed up to run for office in 1994 and was looking forward to some no-holds barred debates against my opponents. In fact, I had saved up some great one liners for former Del. Henry Heller, Len Teitelbaum and newcomer Andria Mandel. Del. Petzold had moved up to run for State Senate that year. (Remind me sometime to tell you a great Del. Petzold story).

When fellow Republican grassroots advocate Brigitta Mullican recently asked me if I knew anyone who wasn’t currently a candidate, who would be willing to give women advice about running for office at an upcoming event, I said I would be willing to do so. At that time, I did not intend to run for anything in 2018. In fact, I had reservations about re-entering potentially hostile territory, but I thought that my experience as a Democrat, independent and Republican candidate could be helpful for the women in our county.
