I voted for one of the 25 Mayoral Candidates
So I went and early voted on Friday at the AgriCenter. My last time to vote in the 'city' for now since we are moving from Cordova (city) to Lakeland (county). No lines, no wait, all the poll workers were extremely friendly. I've been trying to keep up with things, but it is so overwhelming to look at a ballot with that many candidates! Whew! I wasn't dead set on any one candidate, but I never miss out on voting and to be honest I was between a couple of them. Mainly I have been trying to follow who is out there for the animals. Not many even have that on their agenda. I know I should be worried about taxes or schools..but I feel like those things are inevitable and sadly most people here send their kids to private schools unless they are in the county or can send them to one of the few good city school. Since we don't have kids, honestly I try not to even get wrapped up in all of that yet. I hate thinking that we will have to pay for their schooling..oh well another day to worry about that. I have to worry about someone passing a BSL (breed specific legislation) banning Pit Bulls. But unfortunately I haven't really heard if any are thinking of it, as it no one is really talking about animal rights. The person I voted for, I'm thinking won't do this (pass BSL)..and basically that's how I voted, well and I believe this is the right person for the job. Very curious to see how this all plays out..
The main reason I started this blog is to show you some insight into my life and show how normal 'girly' girls like me own the most wonderful breed on the planet. For those scared, confused, or misinformed about Pit Bulls, see that I am just like you and these two boys are my babies. If one person learns something about Pit Bulls from me, I have succeeded. I am a Bellydancing, Jazzercising, Trekking, Boot Camper that loves her fiance and her 2 Pit Bulls dearly. I am a University of Tennesee Grad (twice) and a die hard Vol Fan, no other college teams for me. I am very opinionated and want to save all the homeless dogs in Memphis and around the world...well one dog at a time. Oh and I am also in search of the best bbq in Memphis, by the way.. I am also a small business owner managing the lifestyles of the rich and famous. It's fun and it pays the bills :)
