Just wanted to say: Don't worry. It's not me. You don't have to worry about a Crazy neighbor winding up on some U.S. House committee overseeing budget, health care, defense or national security. Phew!
And, I may be Crazy, but I'm not Crazy enough--to run for political office.
As the Times says about our newest contender for the 10th Congressional District race:
With 11 people already running or likely to run to replace Rep. Ellen Tauscher in the 10th Congressional District, self-described "soccer mom" Tiffany Attwood of Danville said Monday she'll make it an even dozen.
"I know it sounds cliched, but I want to make a difference," Attwood, 38, said Monday, noting her work in home mortgages and her own family situation has put the economic crisis into bleak perspective. "I really want to help those people, I have some big ideas and I want to see people feel like we really can get out of this."
Atwood is a Hayward native, a Democrat, and of Latina/Filipina descent. She is also a wife, mother, and mortgage officer with Emery Financial. If that's not all: She works part time with UPS and serves on the Danville Planning Commission, which means, she says, "what it's like to balance family life with making ends meet."
