I know someone famous!

Congratulations to the new Mayor of Lockport IL by a vote of 1523-1520, Dev Trivedi! Wait a minute, I don't know anything about politics, and I haven't lived in Lockport for years, why should I care about this? Well as it turns out, Dev's son Dilip (affectionately known as Phil) is one of my best friends. We met through our Moms, who worked together at K-Mart so many years ago. We built and maintained Gaming FM and traveled the country together (well we went to E3). The Trivedi's have been like a second family to me and Sarah, who went to school with Dilip.

Anyways, if you ask me, Dev is what Lockport needs. Oh, so you think my opinion is biased? Well I watched Channel 6 when I lived in Lockport, and laughed as all of the city council members rushed through the day's agenda in an effort to get home to eat chips and watch Wheel. Not Dev, he was that one voice who was always saying, "Let's take a closer look at this issue and examine it". With a collective sigh, the other council members would re-examine the issue. He'll work hard and he's a genuinely nice guy who will have you over for a holiday BBQ. Dev takes office on May 6th.

That's my political commentary for the year.
