Shrewd Politics

K is now in her second term as an elected official at her school.  Last year,  she decided to run for Rally Commissioner.  That’s the kid that gets to help plan the school rally’s.  It was also the most popular office.  She ran against 6 other kids.  And lost.

But later in the year, the girl who was elected as Treasurer failed to come to any student council meetings.  So they asked K if she would fill in.  She happily agreed.  The job combined two things she enjoys--math & money.

This year, she decided to skip Rally Commissioner and go straight for Treasurer.  She won the election.  It probably helped that she was an incumbent running without any opposition.  That’s some seriously shrewd politics,  I’d say.
