I ASKED THE CANDIDATES FOR EVERY RACE IN EVERY DISTRICT ACROSS THE CITY, "WHAT WILL YOU DO IF YOU DO NOT WIN YOUR RACE ON NOVEMBER 8TH?"
"If I do not win in November, I will try to be the best grandfather possible to my two grandsons, Brooks and Connor, both under the age of three. I will spend as much time as possible with them, until the reality of unemployment sets in and I have to find another job. I may also devote a big chunk of time to hiking sections of the Appalachian Trail, as I have a bucket list goal of completing the entire 2,100 miles. I will also complete my goal of paddling to all 18 of Virginia's barrier islands. (I've made it to 16 already.) I will also complete the renovation of our house in the Fan, which we moved into a few weeks ago after a year long renovation project. After focusing on these personal projects I will return to the civic arena, hopefully finding a way to make a difference, and probably serving as a mentor to kids who need more adults in their lives."
