Let the campaigning begin!

It’s finally September which means the last third of the year is upon us. That matters because any day now (we’re guessing next month) those end of the year retrospectives are going to fill up all the news holes not taken up by swine flu.

What does that mean? Well, it means any day now people are going to start considering who to vote for to be Stocktonian of the Year (Not to be confused with our end of the year award Real Stocktonian of the Year). Stocktonian of the Year is an award given out to people who have gone above and beyond for the city of Stockton, although not neccessarily this year. Which means the award usually goes to some old dude who biggest accomplishment of the current year was beating their best mall lap time.

Needless to say, that’s total bullshit. So, in an effort to correct that egregious error (and to fill space during an otherwise slow news stretch), I’m throwing my hat in the ring as the most qualified candidate for Stocktonian of the Year. I haven’t seen the list of actual candidates, but last year’s had Dave Brubeck on it. An asshole who hasn’t even visited Stockton in the past year is in the running for Stocktonian of the Year. Now you know why we created the Real Stocktonian award.

So yeah, I should be Stocktonian of the Year. Why? Well, we’ll tell you why over the next few months. Basically when jack shit happens. And yes, we’re totally aware we’re stealing Middagh’s shtick, but we plan (HA!)  on actually making this funny.
