RUMOR HAS IT – Reuben Stringfellow will run for office in 2010. (Mayor of Arcadia, OK)

It is NOT official – no one in the city of Arcadia, OK needs to worry JUST YET – but in 2010, or perhaps just before that, Reuben Stringfellow (currently Spc. Reuben Stringfellow, proudly serving in Iraq through the U.S. Army) will be making his official announcement. First we have to find out all the specs on exactly how to run for public office in the state of Oklahoma. Reuben’s very excited about his possibilities. There are currently 283 people living in the city limits. Of that about 200 or so are of voting age. We’ll be asking them to register if they are not registered, and to vote of course for Reuben when the time comes. He has to finish his tour of duty in Iraq, then he has to return to Alaska for a couple of months. We can establish his residence easily enough – my father and mother have lived in Arcadia since Reuben’s birth, and Reuben has legally lived with them on several occasions. His plan is to buy property as soon as he can, and to begin shaking as many hands as possible. Now, if that means sitting at the roadside Route 66 landmarks such as the Big Red Barn, Pops, and/or the Washington Irving monument to his camp site – drinking beer with the boys, kissing the girls, and just being an all-around Sooner bred Good-ol-boy, well, that’s what it may take. He’s happy about his chances, he’s wanting to do so much for the little blink-and-miss-it community, that to hear him and listen to his excitement, you’d think Arcadia was Edmond. (That statement really only works if you’re a local…it’s like comparing a bass to a dolphin!) LOL So there you go – Reuben Stringfellow, Mayor of Arcadia! (Hopefully) We’ll work on the campaign sign designs next week – get the commercial set up, decide where to shoot, when and where it runs, and maybe start a newsletter in the community so he’ll have someplace to post his picture other than the post office. Hahahaha….Oh, sometimes I just make myself laugh. Love you Boy! I mean, Mr. Mayor. (He’ll have to clean up his MySpace now!)
