Never!   But an opportunity came forth, and I went out of my comfort zone and threw my name in the ring.   If I was elected, great, if I wasn’t, well I’d have no regrets.   At least I tried.   As many of you know me, you know I am not great at public speaking, not a big talker at all, really. I consider myself more of a listener, thinker and someone behind the scenes.   But going outside of my ...
