I am running for mayor, and this post is my official announcement. You may write in Matthew Alexander LaChance for mayor of the city of Ann Arbor. If I am elected, I will refuse to make any decisions. All decisions about budgets and whatever else a mayor does will come from the community.
How will that work? If I am elected, you will need to figure that out. You have my word that I'll spend my workdays making myself as available as I can be.
@matt what is your stance on taxes
@wandrewni My stance is that taxes are how a government acquires money previously held by its people
@matt Will you be running with a vice mayor?
@soccrchik I guess the entire city of Ann Arbor will become Vice Mayor. If elected, I'll have to make a point of bestowing that title to all citizens
@soccrchik "I elected myself Vice Mayor of the city of Ann Arbor and all I got was this stupid t-shirt"
@matt are you ready with form letter responses to my emails?
@bearperson More seriously, I'm not sure how much I'd really need, beyond "figure it out" or "come help us figure it out." If I'm the mayor, and you want some action or other, I won't be the one to talk to.
@matt what if i want to go swimming
@matt like summer swimming
@wandrewni That's a great question
@matt what about dogs, both cute and cutest
@wandrewni I have seen both kinds of dogs (both cute and cutest) wag their tails, and I can only assume they were having an excellent time.
@matt Also loved this retweet by Onstad. I mean, sounds like Pat to me
