I’ve thought about it for a couple of weeks now, and I’ve made up my mind not to run for House of Delegates.
If I run, I work for the good of a single seat. If I don’t run, then I can continue and markedly expand my efforts to help influence the outcome of House of Delegates races across the state. I cannot do both of these things simultaneously. I’m not sure that it’s the right decision, but I have selected what seems to be the greater good.
If I don’t get the funding that I’m seeking for the organization that I’m setting up to benefit Democrats this November, then I may end up doing neither, which would be a terrible shame. So I’m redoubling my efforts on behalf of Democrats across the state, and I hope to make a strong difference how things turn out come Election Day. Perhaps just not in the way that I’d considered making a strong difference.
