An architect ran for mayor last term. I know little about the inner workings of local govt, but I'm pretty active in community discussion. I'm also about ten years junior the next youngest council person. I don't want to do it at all, but I'm being told I should take one for the team. We'll see. I agree though careers I also wish more architects and designers participated more. I think everyone is so understandably skittish about losing business however. It's unfortunate. My philosophy is I just kind of say 'fuck it.'
