Today is the first day of spring. Alfred Lord Tennyson once wrote, "In the spring, a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love." Well, I'm not quite a young man any more, and in the spring, my fancy lightly turns to thoughts of politics. So, in keeping with that brief preamble, let me take this opportunity to announce that have submitted my Candidate Filing Form. As of this afternoon, I am officially a candidate for Kent County Registrar of Wills.
