Our old pal State Representative Jason Grill, unless you are at a Nebraska Football game and then it’s Congressman to you, is at it again.
Known for breaking hearts throughout the metro area, just ask him, he’s a big deal; Grill is now poised to leave his constituents after only 4 years of undistinguished service.
In a Missouri Ethics Commission filing, Grill has changed the office he intends to run for from re-election to his current House seat to an undefined “statewide office.”
Grill has recently been denied the opportunity to run for the State Senate by members of his own party. With his feelings hurt and his ambition momentarily thwarted, what will Jason Grill do?
It appears that Grill has decided to pack up his ball and go home- temporarily. Sources familiar with his thinking tell the Source that Grill will sit out the 2010 election and then run for statewide office in 2012. Grill had thought about running for City Council in 2011, but realizes that his statewide ambitions would only be harmed by serving in that capacity.
In a related development, sources close to Grill now say that they expect Grill to propose to his long-time girlfriend within the next year. The Source wants to be the first to congratulate the soon to be ex-representative Jason Grill and the Wizard’s PR department.
Here at The Source we are certain the two events are unrelated. Surely it is just a coincidence that both events are happening simultaneously…right?
