I’m officially running for Secretary of State in Missouri

I received this email this weekend:

I’m a reporter with KOLR10 News in Springfield, MO…I manage news content for the station’s website, OzarksFirst.com.  Are you the same Justin Harter on the Missouri ballot for Secretary of State?

If so, can you send me a photo we can use in our Voters Guide, and a short biography, please?  Also a few sentences on your political philosophy.  Thanks very much!  –Karen

Sure enough, there really is a candidate running with the same name as me. I secretly want to reply and pretend I’m really running, but are there laws against that?

It’s funny to think about, though.

Justin has been around the Internet long enough to remember when people started saying “content is king”.

He has worked for some of Indiana’s largest companies, state government, taught college-level courses, and about 1.1M people see his work every year.

You’ll probably see him around Indianapolis on a bicycle.
