Chris Clem Will Not Seek Re-election
Chris Clem's campaign in 2000 was a major factor in my gaining a greater interest in state and local politics, so I have to thank him for that. That year, I voted in a Republican primary for the first time in my life so that I could vote against Clem. (Obviously I was unsuccessful.)
I've opposed him politically from then onward, but I wish him all the best as he pursues more time with his family.
Now, the big question: who's going to run for this open seat?
