Russell Hanscom’s surprising candidate statement

The following statement, by Kent City Council candidate Russell L Hanscom, was taken from the King County Voter guide.

The original statement can be found here.

Frankly, I’m not really sure I want this job. The pay is crummy, it takes time away from my family, and it’s pretty thankless a lot of the time.

However, my lack of enthusiasm does not diminish my competence or honesty.

I’m writing this statement on August 4 and I’m write in the middle of starting a business. If the business takes off like it’s supposed to, between now and November, I sincerely doubt I’ll have enough time to be an effective representative for your concerns.

I honestly don’t know what else to say. This is the reality I’m facing today.
