Every election, you always hear that this is the most important election of your life time. Every other time you've heard that, it's BS. Romney vs. Obama? Who cares. Kevin Johnson vs. Heather Fargo? Psst. Please.
There's only one really consequential election, and that's for Sacramento's Most Eligible Bachelor & Bachelorette put on by Girls on the Grid.
This year, I've decided to throw this site's weight behind two of the contestants. I've done extensive research on these candidates and I've discovered they're definitely Sacramentans, eligible, a bachelor OR bachelorette, and they live on the grid.
Also, they're friends in real life, so what kind of friend would I be if I didn't support them.
First, most eligible bachelor. Cowtown Eats endorses...Colin Sueyres.
Colin is a sophisticated and debonair gentleman who is an all around nice guy. He's always down to party, but has also gone through all that maturing that happens in your 20s. I've already voted for him once, and I hope you do too.
For most eligible bachelorette, Cowtown Eats endorses...Emilie Cameron.
If you're the kind of guy who gets intimidated by a successful woman, Emilie's not for you. She's already been named one of Sacramento's Top 40 under 40, and is part of the leadership teams of Sacramento Metro EDGE, Sacramento Public Relations Association, and she's biked a century. She's also a successful executive at one of Sacramento's most prestigious public affairs firms. She's also a ton of fun to hang out with. (I won't hold the fact that she's a Giants fan against her.)
There you have it. If you know some of the nominees in real life, I'm not asking you to vote for one of these two over your actual friends. But if you don't know any of them, if you trust my judgement on restaurants and happy hours, you should trust my judgement here. Vote for Emilie and Colin.
Voting ends on Monday, February 11 at 7 p.m. Click here to vote.
You can read about the rest of the nominees on Girls on the Grid, and don't forget to mark your calendars for the SMEBB 2013 Finale Party at Marylin's on K on Tuesday, Feb. 12. Find more info on Facebook.
Remember, elections have consequences. You can't complain if you don't vote.
