It Paid Off!

Remember last February when I did standup comedy at a fundraiser for a woman running for City Council? Truth is, I didn't think she stood a chance to win. Her campaign was funded on a shoestring and she entered the race with zero name recognition. But guess what?
She won!
We now have our very first openly gay city council rep.
And this is in Texas, making her win that much sweeter.
At her victory party last night, I told her I wanted a bike path around the little lake that's in her district, about a mile from my house.
She said okay!
I think I'm gonna like having the home number of a city council member.
