I have been having trouble with my computer off an on since Saturday, so I neglected to write anything about my friend Nick Fontana, who was just picked to replace Daniel Patterson.
I’ve known Nick as long as I’ve been alive, I think. He was an intern for Mo Udall way back, and ended up taking over for a fellow employee who took a long term leave. He’s still a tremendous admirer of Udall, and if he only learned five percent of what Mo had to offer, District 29 will do okay.
Nick was my sponsor when I took my first communion way back when. So, if any of y’all start talking trash, you’ll have a blogger to deal with.
NB: A few of you may be wondering why I didn’t comment on the selection process. I’ve got plenty of stories and opinions about it. However, my brother was on the committee that culled the nominees, so I thought it would be better not to cause him trouble by my bloviations.
