I became active in local politics the last time the fire department was being taken apart. I served on GPAC, which was chaired by Andy Klein and was a miserable experience. I applied for a seat on the Transportation and Circulation Commission, but by that time Omar and Randy were on the council and I wasn't chosen. I'm now on three County Commissions/Committees, which I really enjoy. It's a very different atmosphere and very satisfying to be able to actually make a difference.
