One of the women from Oak Park Progressive Women for Action kindly invited me to her work holiday party and ushered me from person to person, introducing me and asking them to sign my petition to run for library board. I walked in with five signatures and walked out less than an hour later with twenty-six! (I needed twenty-five to get on the ballot.)
I’ll collect a few more over the weekend for insurance in case any get disqualified for address or other issues, but I think you can now safely expect me to be on the ballot in April.
I am running for office. That still seems a little unreal.
