Shouldn't this be in the political random thoughts? :p

In all seriousness, I mostly agree with @GRtak. You should be honoured that the council people think highly of you (respected local businessman) - or they think you can be relied upon to always vote their way. ;)

Society needs sensible people in the institutions so I do think that it would be good for your town to have you on board. But if it's also good for you, that's another matter. You usually sound like you have enough on your plate already, and council work will be more than just the meetings. Plus, the potential of people getting on your nerves. Is it worth it?
On the other hand, it might actually be a good experience if the people in your town are good people and what thus council does has actual meaning.

Was supposed to go look at a house this weekend, but the owner just accepted an offer. Damn. The house itself was pretty cool, but it had a 1400 square foot garage. Biggest garage I've seen in my price range. I'm kinda sad I didn't act quicker.

I’m stuck on a train between East Croydon and Clapham Junction because some twat felt a need to trespass on the railway line.

But at least my phone is showing a sense of humour and playing “Sit and Wait” on shuffle.

Major issues like that are so common at the moment, I lost count of how many suicides have directly affected my trains this year. After 11 years of commuting by train I've just had enough of the crappy service but there's no viable alternative.

I finally have a garage for the first time and it's awesome. It's regular size though, not a lot of room once the cars are in.

I’m not sure what exactly it was, but the Twitter replies to Southern Rail include one that says that a passenger on one of the already stopped trains opened a door outside a station, jumped on the line (third rail?!) and ran off, thereby creating a second trespassing incident.
