Macon Cowles for City Council!

My buddy Macon Cowles, in the act, running for City Council here in Boulder, Colorado.

Macon's one of those lawyers who actually makes a difference, does the right thing and has the right motivations. I wish him loads of luck (and plan on helping him get elected). We need more people like this involved in politics, be it local, state or national.

Me? I'm hoping this is just the first step in a long political career for Macon. He's already, in my book, got more class, better ideas and a smarter approach to how you go about making society a better place than the folks we have in the senate today. But, one step at a time. I'm sure, if he reads this, he'll laugh at the thought. Hopefully, with time, he'll see he's the kind of guy we want (hell, that we NEED) in real positions of influence in American government.

I disagree. On the house size limits issue, Macon has shown considerable hostility toward ordinary homeowners in South Boulder who simply want to be able to expand their own dated, 1950s era ranch homes to meet the needs of their families. I find him both classless and class-ist, representing the vested financial interested of wealthy Boulder homeowners instead of ordinary families. I won't be voting for Macon, and encourage you and your readers not to either.

Get to know him before you pass inappropriate and, frankly, just plain wrong judgement.

An excellent read from an ex-evangelical.
