Please be sure to register by May 23rd to vote in the Presidential Primary, when we will all have the unique and rare opportunity to elect an artist for Marin County Supervisor : Mari "Mari Mack" Tamburo (in other words, me.) I'm voting for change and I hope you will see the value in someone with my diverse skill set in public office. Many gigs between gigs over the years have given me a chance to see things from many different perspectives. I see this as another way to "use my powers for good" - and if I am ever going to be able to self finance my music, which means complete artistic control, I need a day job. Plus, the kids in our 'hood will miss the Troll if we have to sell our house and move. We have already lost too many friends and wonderful neighbors to this Bay Area Housing crisis.
In order to make a more informed decision, we all have several more opportunities to participate in the process by attending one or more of the remaining Candidate Forums. I'm learning a lot about our local political scene - but to be completely honest, at times this experience feels like the worst part of touring without the best part (the music.) Just my observation, of course. That said, its still fun learning new things and making new friends.
