I've never commented here before, but I'd like to publicly throw my weight behind Patrick Hill for Santa Clarita Community College District Seat 5. Two reasons: (1) I've met him, and he is intensely focused on the community void of all higher office aspirations. I like that because he seems to want to be a career Santa Claritian, not a career politician. (2) It seems pretty clear that Scott Wilk wants to run for State Assembly. I say, if that is your career goal, to move up the political ladder, than go for it! But if he wins the 2011 College Board election, and then bails on the College Board to get on the State Assembly there will have to be a special election to fill the vacancy...not exactly an inexpensive proposition both in hard cost to Santa Clarita, as well as the deficit of continuity.
Personally, I worked for the president of the United States on his re-election campaign some years ago, and I was afforded an opportunity to meet professional politicians, great statesman, entrepreneurial & honest new congressman, and a few folks selling snake oil. My years in DC taught me how to spot one of the good ones, and Pat Hill is one of the good ones. I don't care if you are the Governor, or on the College Board, a great leader focuses on the people before his career. Mr. Hill really impressed me, so I had to say these few words.
