Letter to the Republican Party

Just as a note of update. On Dec 5, the city announced an opening on the Planning Commission, on Dec 11 I hand delivered an application to the city for the same. Both the secretary and the City Administrator were there when I dropped this off. You will recall that I forwarded a copy to you all at that time. Since that time I have heard nothing at all from Mayor Bridger. I did briefly walk up to him as he was heading into the courthouse about a week ago and told him that I was surprised that I hadn't received a call from him. He replied that he had some reservations about me serving in the legislature and on a board at the same time. I asked him if he knew how many boards Mark Kinner had served on. He said he didn't know, I said, "a gob." I also echoed our city administrator's sentiments that we should all have more open discourse, and that serving on a board would help keep me more abreast of local issues. The mayor replied that, "That makes sense."
However, there has been NO official communication whatsoever regarding my letter. I view this as disrespectful and unacceptable. Some response or acknowledgement should be expected as a common courtesy.
I am currently considering several options for my next move.
Just keeping you all informed.
