As both candidates for mayor and their supporters stood in sweltering heat waving at passersby, everybody looked pretty damned parched.
I got them each a case of water and dropped it off for both candidates' crews. I was seen by someone who knows I support Sam, toting water to Alan and his crew. Alan told me his crew had a cooler full of Gatorade, but I left the water anyway...(mostly because I didn't want to tote it back to my car.) And, I suspect that they'll make good use of it. Alan thanked me for the thought. We shook hands. I left.
Why did I give Alan water? I respect his crew for standing in the heat for someone who is willing to take the heat of being a public official and going through the election process. Same reason I left a case of water for Sam's crew.
I like Alan. I don't like his campaign style. But, my they did look tired and parched.
So, if you saw me carrying water to the Hanks camp and thought I deserted Sam's, don't bother calling me. They just looked thirsty.
