So it’s not uncommon for people to look at us like we are crazy for doing this at this point in our lives again, or others who are concerned about us embarking on this journey once more…it’s understandable. It’s not an easy thing to do for anyone, least of all building a business, running a home and raising 2 children, oh and less we forget our dog, Buddy the beagle. It’s an insane time commitment and sacrifice. And honestly, I don’t really enjoy being in the public eye ALL the time.
So…why did I give my consent To Support Him to Run Again?
I know it’s sort of a cliché to say it, but he really is doing it in large part for all our kids. Frankly, it’s deeply concerning to think about the state of our city or country when our children are old enough to be starting their families, having adventures, or wanting to start a business. And to this a lot of people cynically respond that there are too many problems, politics are too corrupt, and what can one person do anyway? I’ve thought these things myself. But, if we don’t have good, smart, honest men in office doing the little good that they can…can you imagine the detrimental, cascading effect that would have?
But that’s not where my husband's head is right now. So, I said ‘YES’ because that's what he wants to do and somebody has to. And that somebody happens to be my husband, Dennis Marsden whom I believe in, am proud of and who genuinely has a heart for people, his city and his community.
