I’ll be out of the country—that’s right, the country—until November 7, doing my best to stay out of local politics for the final two weeks of the election while I visit friends on a long-planned trip.
Answers to your frequently asked questions below.
Has the election literally driven you out of the country?
No, but who knows? It might have if I hadn’t planned this trip several months ago, when I found a ridiculously cheap ticket that just happened to take me far away right at the end of the campaign cycle, when everybody has made up their minds and yet all the campaigns are still yelling.
Does this mean we won’t benefit from your insights during the final weeks of the election cycle?
Yes and no! I won’t be posting here regularly, if at all, but you can always check out my campaign coverage by clicking on the Election 2017 tag. And if you still haven’t decided how to vote, check out my endorsements.
What are you doing? Why are you abandoning us?
I’m visiting some dear friends that I haven’t seen in a long, long time. And possibly some castles!
But I want to yell at you!
Yelling is for Twitter.
Who should I support for mayor?
That’s easy: Cary Moon, Teresa Mosqueda, Lorena Gonzalez, and Pete Holmes. Find out why in my endorsements!
When will we see you again?
I’ll be back on Election Day. In the meantime, if you want to show your support for the work I do here—which, believe me, necessitates a vacation from time to time— you can always become a sustaining supporter on Patreon or give a one-time contribution through Paypal.
