There is a vacant spot for our district and DH has been asked to apply for it. He's always been interested in CC and politics so this seems like a good chance to volunteer for our community. The commitment is 2 meetings a month- which is a lot since he travels. Luckily the meetings are usually only 1-2 hours and are walking distance. We have been in our city for 5.5 years and love our neighborhood. We are one of the fastest growing areas in the state with many big changes on the horizon. However our long term goal is to move about 2 1/2 hours away but I don't expect that to happen before his term would end.
Have you or a spouse served? Any other considerations?
