I Can’t Stand Running for Elected Office

14 Apr

lincoln_no_beardThe writing challange on Daily Post this week is to write a 50 word story. This is my attempt to capture my thoughts about the moment when I made the decision to take some extra responsibility in a non-profit organization (short stories aren’t really my thing… but I gave it a wack).

It’s time to move on.

Two leave; one doesn’t want the responsibility.

Improving the financial mobility of minorities will soon end

Unsure of my true motivation — Passion or power — I opened my phone

“What do I need to do to become the president?”

I’ve been volunteering for a local non-profit this semester and pretty much all of the leadership is leaving to go to grad school at the end of the summer. There are only a few members of the organization left.  I’m not really qualified or experienced enough to apply for the position but why not give it a shot? (AND write a dramatic blog post about it!)
