Has anyone here ever ran for a local office? If so how did you do? I am considering running for a local office position here in 2011.

I ran into Office Depot once. Does that count?

I've pondered it, but haven't done so. I think I would like the position but wouldn't be good at getting elected. What are you thinking about?

First, volunteer as a community organizer.

Emulate other elected people.
Don't tell the truth.

If thats a problem, go to law school first.

City Council. It would probably be the most expensive in terms of money but its a paid position.

Screw that. Just run for president. It's pretty clear that experience isn't important unless you're white. Oh crap. You aren't white, are you?

IMHO I would think you would have to start with lots of community involvement this helps get your name out there. Of course if you live in a small community where everyone knows you anyway I guess it wouldn't matter.

In local politics name recognition is everything. Of course you want that name to be respected.

I ran for Governor of Texas about 10 years ago.

Some of you may remember the "Smell my Finger Campaign"

Obviously I lost. I think mostly because I proposed to make animal masturbation mandatory for illegal aliens.

I would think posting in this forum would pretty much disqualify anyone, so you're out.

Just watch the sixth and seventh seasons of The West Wing, and do what Josh does.
