30 Minus 2 Days of Writing: The Mayor (10/28)
This theme has been really messing with me since I first saw it.
No idea, seriously.
I mean, I’ve dealt with some idiot mayors and ones I’d love to talk about how inept and stupid they were. That and how they were sneaky and gutless weasels who teamed up with others to do bad things.
But karma will hopefully eventually get them, if it hasn’t already. Karma loves spineless people.
Alas, I was looking for something more. I didn’t know any “mayor” songs or anything like that.
I could have researched the history of mayors, but that seems like a time-consuming project that might bore me to tears.
So I went searching and what I came up with was this really excellent video made by a mayoral candidate in Florida.
This was in 2011.
Sadly, this gent didn’t win. Alas, his official website has this at the top:
We got an impressive 30% of the vote on election day! Thank you to everyone who supported me. We will build on our momentum and run again in 2013!
Maybe his chance will truly come in 2013.
Below are some of his election videos. Very clever. Using some pop culture and things to maybe aim toward a younger population. I’d have been interested to see more about his stand, if I was in his area.
Take a peek at the videos. Pretty good and an interesting way to go with the campaign.http://youtu.be/Y-mXIN3KNxo
If I ever run for mayor anywhere, I hope I could be this clever. It’s no wonder he got 30 percent of the vote. I’ll be interested to see how his 2013 campaign goes!
