    Thom Prentice on Election Loss

I was able to attend Place 2 candidate Thom Prentice’s watch party at Zelicks on election night. He came in third place with 11.9% of the vote. Even through the loss, Prentice was still in a happy mood and only spoke of the good things the city of San Marcos showed in voting.

“I think it’s great. People were able to vote for change, to express their opposition by voting for me and by voting for Mason and by voting for Lisa Prewitt and I congratulate Jude Prather, who is a very thoughtful council member, open minded and I’m just glad that I’ve again taken the opportunity to raise issues of the decline of democracy, global warming, wall street tentacles here is San Marcos, sustainability and development, prudent development, green development.”
-Thom Prentice

 Prentice ran for mayor against Daniel Guerrero last year and made his bid for city council this year. He ran raising issues on global warming and democracy. He worked as a professor and high school teacher in Austin, is retired and is a 14-year cancer survivor.  Prentice did not block walk, poll or do phone banking during his campaign. He says he wants to continue working with city council on the issues of the community.

“Well I want to continue raising the issues I’ve raised and to support things that need to be supported and proposed things that need to be proposed and oppose things and there are a lot of things of the last three years that need to be opposed.”

 Future plans for him include continue working on his blog and maybe run for office again.

 “I’m not planning to run again but I’m certainly open to the idea and I may run next year, I might wait two years and run for president, I don’t know.”

KTSW Sports: Aftermath of Last Night’s College Basketball

Everyone still alive? Good. Last night's round of college basketball was certainly one for the ages. Great games to cap off a great 24 hour tip-off marathon by ESPN. After the madness I figured I would give my immediate observations on what this season's going to entail. Trying something different. I'm going to start using images to explain my points better in more upcoming blog posts. Since I don't have […]
