In a previous incarnation as a Mother of five children under seven, I found myself up to my neck in local politics because I wanted my children to grow up in a vibrant healthy community. They got pretty good at rounding up neighborhood kids willing to pile into the “way back” of the old station wagon (pre-Nader seatbelts) and be dropped off at the end of long streets to drop off flyers. Election day was always a family high holiday spent standing at the polls. I was not surprised to see Chairworman Balser got started as a “concerned Mom’. I bet there are a lot of stories out there in BMG land, from the “way back” as well as the drivers seat.
