Do you have any interest in politics? If you were elected mayor, do you think you would be able to do a good job?

Hi Sachiko, Hi Keith, Hi Cory !

Mayor elections in Paris (and all over France actually) are less than a month away… it’s really getting ugly, now :mrgreen: .
I don’t think I’d do a good job … too big, too many people to content…

I thought the news was true, but I was a bit surprised by the 80% vote. That’s a lot ! I also wasn’t sure you could get elected as mayor at 18 (french law on that point is horribly complicated; while you’re no longer a minor at 18, you can’t run for office if you’re yonger than 24, I think, and then the age depends on the function you’re running for).

Keep on with this series ! It’s fun !

:shock: Technical issue : there’s no PDF either on the site or in iTunes, but there’s also no vocabulary in the learning center (the japanese doesn’t show up)…

Without even listening, I must say Hillsdale, MI.

Now to listen…

avatar Christopher Hart (KC8UFV):

Michael Sessons (Hillsdale, MI) has Mr. Dunkel beat in age. He didn’t turn 18 until after the deadline for regular candidates, and therefore had to run as a write-in. He won the race while still a High School Senior.

みなさんのコメントを読むだけでも、とても勉強になりますね〜〜 :smile:  近い将来、英語で私も会話に参加できたらいいな〜。がんばります!I will do my best!


Thanks everyone, for your comments.
Yes, this is an inspiring story, isn’t it???
I like this uplifting stories and will try and find more.

Sorry for the PDF problem. It should be fixed now.
Keep those comments coming!


avatar Cory:

Yeah, I agree. Getting elected at age 18 with 80% of voters supporting you! That was a surprise. Makes me wonder how bad the previous mayor/opponent was.

lol lol You knew the story already.
