Mr. Second Gentleman, I write this letter to explore the importance of having a strong male role model for all husbands out there that are lucky enough to be married to a woman that shatters glass ceilings. You are perhaps as rare as the female executive.
I’ve spent the last decade training newly elected local government officials. I always start with asking why they choose to run for office. I have never heard “I want to run a murky, withdrawn, locked, suppressive, tyrannical government”. Yet, the moment most local government elected officials take office we, the public, immediately see them as corrupt or on the take.
What if we started to get involved right at home whether its volunteering to mentor youth, feed the hungry, or run for City Council. We make time to do all kinds of things in our lives. We can make time for our community!
