Thatís interesting. You seem quite involved in politics. I enjoy discussing politics, but I donít think I would enjoy being in politics.<quoted text>I highly doubt that any US Attorney would help out with a speeding ticket. lol
My hubby dabbled in politics a few years ago. So we were able to meet congressmen and house of representatives, and became friends with most of them. A former congressman rides his motorcycle with us, when he has the time. I am not the kind of person who gets all star struck with anyone. Up in New York, we used to hang out with a lot of DA's, judges and high ranking officials. They are just normal as you and I.
I wish your friend the best of luck if he decides to run against Hagan. Running for any seat in politics is extremely difficult. Hoping that he has the best campaign staff. I've been there on a lower level of politics and it was time consuming. I was campaign treasurer. Our campaign staff used to call me "anal" when it came to the finances. But, with me being so "anal" our campaign was the only one who wasn't brought up on violations. Just recently, I was asked to work with a gentleman who will be running for congress. I haven't yet decided.
Iím not star struck and neither was my wife. She was just thinking that since after my last ticket the assistant DA told me to call her if I ever needed anything, it was good to know the DA in another county should I need anything. Itís just nice to network. You never know if you will have a question or problem that someone can help you out with or vice versa.
Itís a good group of people to know. One guy owns a property management company and manages over 500 properties. I am thinking of rolling over my 401k into a self-directed 401k in a few year, buying real estate with it, and having him manage it. I wanted to know if I could roll it over even if I stayed with my company and another guy in that circle tells me to send him my plan documents and he can tell me (Iím sure I could figure it out myself by looking at the documents, but I wouldnít have known that was where to look or what governed (plan document or federal law) whether or not you could do that).
Itís not my friend who was considering running against Hagen; itís his dad who is a republican and heads the NC state Senate, but he has decided not to run, from what I have read in the news. I also wouldnít say heís my friend Ö heís more of an acquaintance ... since we both practice law there are certain professional courtesies amongst colleagues.
