It is 7:01 AM. Some of us are already at work. The rest of you (at least those of you that live in Ward 5 of Boone, Iowa) are already standing in line at the Boone County Courthouse to cast your vote for Scott Degeneffe.
Some of you aren’t there though. Why not?
If I lived in Ward 5, I would have camped out overnight. Then tailgated in the morning. Then the moment the Boone County Courthouse doors were open, I would’ve have barged in and cast my vote for Scott Degeneffe.
Then I probably would’ve taken the rest of the day off to celebrate that I had done the best thing I could do on that day to improve the future outlook of Boone.
There was a time I was going to write a lengthy letter to the editor to the Boone News Republican about Scott’s many good points and why the good people of Ward 5 should run, not walk to the Boone County Courthouse on November 7 to cast their vote for Scott.
Unfortunately for me and maybe fortunately for Scott, time has not been my friend lately and I missed the deadline. That letter never was written.
Fortunately for you, Scott did write such a letter and I will share it with you:
If you are not an early riser, polls close at 8 PM.
This is the second to last time I’m going to remind you that if you live in Ward 5 of the great town of Boone, Iowa you should get out and vote for Scott Degeneffe for City Council tomorrow.
However, maybe you don’t know Scott as well as I do. It is possible that you haven’t known him for over 15 years. It is possible you haven’t worked with him. It is possible you haven’t been on a competitive barbecue team with him. It is possible you don’t spend your spare time traveling the state of Iowa looking for great tenderloins with him.
It is even possible that you just don’t want to take my word that he is a tremendous choice to represent Ward 5 on the City Council because of his character, because he isn’t an ideologue, because he is a pragmatic problem solver with years of working to build consensus through compromise.
Perhaps you want to hear from the man himself! Well your lucky, below is a video where the audio track is Scott’s interview on KWBG from a few weeks back:
