Why Should You Vote For Me?
Because here’s my motto: Just because other people don’t care how they look doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to look good yourself. And remember that line from “Saturday Night Live” – It’s better to look good than to feel good.
Accessory of Empowerment
Well, I’m not counting my tie as an accessory in this case, though I wear a tie nearly every day and have several hundred of them, collected over many years. I favor unusual designs and colorful patterns that make people take a second look and may draw a smile. I’ve got a lot of ties with an art or history theme, which fits my interests. But the actual accessory today is my socks – which, I’ve found lately, can be just as much fun and get just as much attention as cool ties. My wife, Amy, buys my socks and loves to pick out goofy and entertaining patterns, from socks with sharks, pizza and lobsters, to funky Argyles and even some graffiti designs. Nothing wrong with your feet being happy, right?
Shoes of Empowerment
Good-looking, polished, well-shined shoes make the outfit and finish it off. I tend to wear Cole Haan dress shoes, which are affordable, durable and easy to care for – plus, they look darn smart and feel formal (but not too formal).
Outfit of Empowerment
I’ve been a journalist since college – since high school, actually – and it’s a business that allows you to interact with a vast and diverse range of people daily who come from all walks of life and work. On a particular day, you may be interviewing a congressman or a coach or a cop; long ago, I realized that a standard, nice-looking business suit and tie were the best uniform for whatever professional interactions I may encounter. I like knowing that I’m ready and properly dressed for whatever may come along – plus, wearing a suit each day means I actually spend a lot less time worrying about what to put on in the morning.
