I type these words from a lecture hall at the NIU Facility in Hoffman Estates after having presented myself to a sub committee of the Illinois Democratic Central Committee. My presence is part of my consideration as the Democratic Lieutenant Governor Candidate. My heart is easy now, my time in the light is over for today. I am seated in the back, near the channel 7 camera man.
I am pretty sure I am situated somewhere behind a snowball in hell in the grander scheme of things. However I am satisfying my call to service. With some luck and providence, I will reach that goal someday. For now I need to battle a snowstorm to get home and start building the bookshelves I promised my beautiful fiance.
