Last October, the community of Loxahatchee Groves, Florida voted to incorporate, and ten candidates for the town council have been meeting in local forums.
Well, mostly. One of the ten begged off last week from a forum held at Sunsport Gardens, a local naturist resort; she said that she’d be embarrassed to bring her children along, as she’d done in two previous gatherings. It may have cost her some votes.
Another candidate admitted to some nervousness beforehand, but pressed ahead:
“I’ve been in public speaking a while. This is new for me. Normally if I’m nervous I just picture my audience nude. I don’t know what I’ll do now.”
I bet he did just fine.
