Friends shouldn’t let friends run for office

Column by Hal Walter

Politics – July 1998 – Colorado Central Magazine

LET’S FACE IT. Friends really shouldn’t let friends run for office.

But try as I might to dissuade Curtis Imrie from pursuing politics, he still insists on running. And maybe that’s a good thing for us all.

I met Curtis years ago, and have gotten to know him fairly well as a “mentor” of sorts in the sport of pack-burro racing. He got me started, sold me a burro, and recently told me that I’d be a fat journalist making typos in obits somewhere if it hadn’t been for my involvement in the sport.
