Good luck, Dave! But on the off chance that you win, you'll regret it. I ran for an office once to prevent the sitting board from appointing someone to a vacancy. Turned out that 6 others had the same idea, but I won by a landslide, then got re-elected 4 years later. For 6 years I couldn't go anywhere without someone cornering me to bitch about something. I got most things fixed, but it certainly made enjoying an evening out a challenge.
