Mayor Sam Adams: Congrats!

Having been named the "gay minister" by the Chapel Hill News in covering various blogs in my part of the state of NC re: my mulling over running for an open seat on the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School board, I was struck by the news of Sam Adams (45 y.o.) being sworn in as Portland, OR mayor at 12:01 A.M. on Thursday morning.

Mayor Sam--billed as the Gay Mayor on now the first mayor of such a large metropolitan area who is openly gay. He brings with him a wealth of experience, knowledge, and energy for the position, having served as an assistant to a former Mayor, Vera Katz.

Congrats, Mayor Sam!
