I will be attending Boys State in just under a week. The USNA application has a box for the Governor and Lieutenant Governor positions. I have a few friends that went previously (they were not in the same grade) and they said that 30+ people ran for both Governor and Lieutenant Governor positions and that nobody really voted for who would do a good job, but for who was funny or acted dumb during their speech. I was planning on running for one of these spots. Would it be worth running for Governor/Lt. Governor and risk losing and having no/minimal role, or should I set my sights on a position like Senator, Mayor or Police Chief? From my understanding elections for state level offices are the same day, but I could be wrong. Any insight from those experienced with this would be appreciated.
