I get the most interesting email. Sometimes, it's hate mail or insane ramblings from the deeply troubled.
Sometimes, it's emails like this:
My name is [redacted], a 19-year-old student who is currently studying communications, and I have a favor to ask.
I would like to go into politics. I have decided that I want to dedicate my life to not only those immediately around me, but the entire state. The favor I ask is simple, will take maybe five minutes, and will help me get that much closer to reaching that goal. All I ask is this...
If you had to give an aspiring politician one piece of advice, one sentence to hold onto, what would it be and why?
If I don't hear back I understand, you're a busy man. However if you do write back, you will make at least one young man's day.
So, dear readers, what would that one sentence of advice be? It's not so much a challenge of coming up with advice - I have lots of thoughts - but what one thing comes above all others?
