I have been around Mike Parkinson since early grade school. He is one year older than me. I would not say we are friends that hang out, but we know each other really well through mutual friends. He is an honest guy, He has been in many leadership roles at the GC police departmen. I have seen him in his work capacity. Very professional, knows how to do his job correctly. He isn't a politician, he will tell you an honest answer, and that all we really want. He can change the make up on the board by injecting young blood.
I love to see young people get involved in the political process. I support Mike in this, I hope he is successful, he is the change that we need. And to BLU Angel, pull the dem primary ticket, because even the person on the republican ticket could be a democrat. Be sure to vote!
