Friday Five: Civic Duties

This week from RevGalBlogPals...

  1. How old were you when you voted for the first time? 21
  2. What was the contest at the top of the ballot? Gerald Ford vs. Jimmy Carter (If you are too young to remember, Carter won!)
  3. Can you walk to your polling place? Yes - about 10 minutes because of all of the backyard fences. Plus, I hate the gauntlet of political gladhanders in the parking lot. If I walk, I can avoid them.
  4. Have you ever run for public office? NO WAY! I don't like being dissected.
  5. Have you run for office in a club or school or on a board? Yes, and lost every time. Something about being a woman who speaks her mind...

In your mention of Gerald Ford, he was the only president never elected to that office.

Yup. I remember that, too. :)

I was at the teeny little airport when Carter came to Williamsburg for his debate with Ford. It was exciting to stand there cheering and meet him!

I love that sign generator.
