I'm reading up on some of my district representatives, and I can't help but feel driven to want to become one. Reading some of thier bios, some of them are fairly in touch with the community they serve. Not sure about my town rep, who lives in the secluded mansion a half mile away from me (although my mom who lives closer to him and hr neighbors all say he's a nice guy). So I look at some of the programs they're executing (not meant digitally /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif), and I think, "Wow, that's going to genuinely make a difference in the community without being some corny publicity show like a Washington politician, and it doesn't look like it's really that big a deal for this rep to actually get it done." Stuff like budgeting and crap looks strangely interesting, too. So how would a 28 year old guy with a full time job in the tech sector and absolutely no formal political or law education go about becoming a baby-kissing, grandstanding, flag waving politician?
