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.

For what it's worth, I don't know what mayors do, and I'm not really sure I actually want to be one, but I feel this is a promise I can keep, so I am making it. Vote for me if you think it might be a good idea.

@wandrewni My stance is that taxes are how a government acquires money previously held by its people

@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"
