At-large council member Jan Martin “woke up to find a note on my calendar that my one year countdown to being in office begins today,” she wrote on Facebook Monday. 

Martin said she wrote a blog in 2007 about what it was like to run for office. Now, she plans to write daily Facebook posts about what she’s learned and what it is like to serve in office. 

 “I’ll have to work on my Facebook skills but I hope you’ll join me as I do some reflecting and hopefully encourage others to serve. It’s an honor and privilege to serve, but as I’ve learned, you can go from being a hero to a villain in a matter of hours. I look forward to sharing my final year in office with you.”
