I would be completely satisfied (excited, even) and honored to have any of your three men serve as provincial of our province. Unique gifts and strengths aside, I believe all of you have what it takes to lead and govern us as a province.

So who should I vote for?

For me it comes down to your desire to become provincial. If I'd be happy and confident with any of you, I want to vote for the one who is most open to (and least disrupted by) the possibility. It's one thing to serve, it's another to do so with passion and excitement.

QUESTION: On a scale from 1(least desired) to 10... how willing are you to take on the role of provincial at this time in your life?
