What was going to happen in March, then May, then September, and finally October of this year has been pushed back to June 2008. The move Eastward has been postponed.
I realized I was acting like the Democratic Party in foreign Policy. I wanted to get out of L.A. but I did not have a good plan, and the finances were trashed by a car that always needs work. My problem was: I was trying to make a date certain for leaving, not heeding the situation going on. Like in Iraq, it will not work.
My plan is to stay with my company and eventually get to work in their PR department. Then move in June 2008 with the PR skills refreshed. I am still watching the political tides and waiting to see if I can fit in the political world before November 2008. Until that point, I will work for my company for a while (at least a year [until 2009 if you're following], if not longer) when I am in Metro distance from the Capitol and the White House.
The skills that will help me in DC are worthless in L.A. My background is in political strategy (i.e. The California Encyclicals), Policy studies (Ask me about Appropriations), Event Fundraising (what I did back in NYC), Public Relations (No more shameless self-promoter than I), and Congressional Rules.
So, I am re-setting the clock. First, I need to make a "small jump" within LA before I move. Sorry, personal reasons here. Also, I have to stay local to see my sister's marriage. (Yay!)
But, if you work in the Beltway and in the same political party and wish to see my Resume, send me an email. Until then, keep reading.
