I'm a little bit younger and have a different energy level.

I thought if I got 30 to 35 percent, I had a chance.

Politics in Palm Beach has gotten stale. The council needs a change in demographics. There's a lot of families and younger people in town. Currently none of them are represented.

The papers said I was a political newcomer, but I've been coming to Palm Beach for 20 years. I'm a member a lot of clubs. I know a lot of people.

I truly think the zoning issue that affected the north enders motivated them to get out and vote, those who usually don't vote.

I'm expected to vote my first day (Tuesday) so I'm cramming a month of learning into a couple of days.
