Do you have too much time on your hands? Fancy doing some fundraising, touching other people's babies and making empty promises to end traffic, poverty, gentrification and the line at Pink's?

Well, then maybe you should run for city office! Today is your last day to file your intention to run in next year's city primary: you have till noon to hand in the paperwork at the city clerk's office at 555 Ramirez St., Space 300.

Next year's races are for the even-numbered city council districts, and the odd-numbered LAUSD board and community college board seats. Contrary to what some city officials believe, yes, you have to live in your district to represent it.

If you decide to run for office because of this post, let us know in the comments.
