The time my brother accidentally got elected to public office.

November, 1998: My brother was working as an engineer for the early morning music & chatter show at KISS 92.1 (before it went all "Delilah"-y). Election Day rolled around, and the DJs noticed on a sample ballot in the paper that no one was running for a seat on the county Soil and Water Conservation Board.

And then this happened.

Sadly, the "Reverend Dewey" has not sought public office since this brush with infamy. But it sure did liven up the folks' Christmas card letter that year.


I was just wondering what the nitty gritty on the soil and water seats was. Thanks for the clarity
