Official Announcement

Shannon told me to write something more light hearted this morning as we discussed blogs. I’m not always good at light hearted (or easy going). However, it is in this vein that I am officially announcing my intention to form an exploratory committee to run for Illinois’ Fifth Congressional District: The one Rahm Emmanuel is vacating to be President Elect Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff.

I’m tapping a few people who can help me in this endeavor.

Congress needs more dedicated liberal geeks. I fit the bill. Why should I bother waiting till I retire? I’m starting today.

Gleason 08!

update 1: I already have a supporter (thanks Bill!) and another member of my Committee. Let’s hear it for Outreach!
