I’ve earlier conceded that I sought my first DFL endorsement this year. But I first attended a DFL precinct caucus in 2006 or 07 after years of trying not to tie myself into a pretzel meeting the Gollum-like policy expectations of the Republican Party – taxes on the poor, free licence for the rich.
Loren Martell has a particularly strong start in his description of what it takes (took) to win the DFL endorsement for the non-partisan office of the Duluth School Board. I was a little surprised to see our Board Chair, David Kirby, in the screening committee weighing me as a candidate.
Our connection did me little good. I would have sold Central.
