Political Announcement by Michael Benjamin

Dear Friends,

I will NOT seek to serve in the Assembly again. I’m a “recovering politician” and I won’t commit the sin of political hubris. I served. I now serve in a different way.

It’s time for a new generation of honest persons to compete to represent 79th AD. I’ll be an interested & opinionated constituent.

I want to thank you for kind words of advice, support and encouragement. I am forever grateful.

    Let us keep hope alive that a new generation of honest public servants exist. If they are mentored by the current crop or look up to any of them, hope just died.
