This could be very interesting on and off the field. One thing that voters in Ward 10 should think about is if they want a local celebrity as their councilor, how many council meetings will be missed because of away games, and (I doubt this will happen) if Szarka gets traded, then that ward would be without representation.
Fans of the team might worry that he becomes too split between the roles on and off the field, however in the off season, he would have undivided attention to his ward, if he wins.
Fortunately, I don't live in Ward 10, so I don't have to think about these things. I've already chosen who I'm voting for in my ward.
Any fans here who do live in Ward 10 with opinions? I'm interested in hearing them. I admit, I'm a football and political junkie and on election night, I will be watching the results closely.
