Recently, on the day after the election, I casually opened up my Excite e-mail account and discovered an e-mail from Wildomar’s Mayor Marsha Swanson.
Perhaps, I thought for a brief moment, she wanted to take the opportunity, following her reelection to be gracious and thank me for my years of community service on the Board of Trustees of the Wildomar Cemetery Special District, or even my significant contribution to information dissemination on the pages of Wildomar Magazine.
However, I instead was exposed to the smallness of the “inner” psyche of the mayor, with the following e-mails, and my response:
From: Marsha Swanson firstname.lastname@example.org>

“Sorry, you had to stay up to monitor the votes, it was all over by 8:30. The people of Wildomar spoke. The only incumbent ever not re-elected is Sheryl, do you get it now?”

I don’t get it. But your profound insecurity is sad, if not amazing. Were you running against Sheryl? Apparently so.

“I beat Sheryl every time. Don’t know what you are thinking? Insecure is one thing I am not.”
Apparently, the mini-mayor of Wildomar has found meaning in her re-election that relates to elections that occurred four years ago. In the last election, former city Council member Sheryl Ade was tending to the cares and needs of her elderly mother, who had fallen and broken her leg just as the election cycle began in 2010.
There are some things in life that must take precedence over obsessions with elections and politics.
There are some “inner” wrinkles on the human psyche that neither Botox or collagen injections will ever cover or erase.

(Editor’s Update: For the record, former Wildomar city councilman Scott Farnam did not get re-elected in 2010. I wonder if Farnam got a similar “I beat your *ss twice,” email from Swanson during her “I’m really, really insecure” victory lap?
