I’ve gotten a few emails and messages from readers asking me if I’m going to throw blog support behind a mayoral and District 5 candidate.
Short answer is no. Long answer is 1) This is a music blog, not a political one. Even though the outcomes of these elections will have an impact on my much beloved music scene and the arts that feed it, it’s a bit silly for a site like mine to endorse someone 2) At the time of registration, I didn’t technically “live” in Athens and as of right now I don’t think this borrowed couch counts as a residence so I’m not even voting here this go round. Bummer, eh?
Now I will point you in the direction of Flagpole which has some interesting articles on the candidates as well as a few question and answer rounds. Take a look and I encourage you to think for yourself and go vote. I cannot stress how important it is that you take your rights as a citizen and use them to make the world a little better place. I’ll hop off this here soapbox now and let y’all get back to the music. Or flailing. Or whatever this is.
