With apologies to Britney (and the candidates)… The Laurel Street Spy invited all the San Carlos candidates running for election on Tuesday, November 8th to take the Twitter challenge: make their pitch in 140 characters or less.

Character Count variation explained: In the email invitation to the candidates, the LSS failed to specify that the 140 characters included spaces. Knowing that candidates are very busy, the LSS decided not to ask for revisions. Also, the LSS refuses to play Twitter police as it’s the spirit of the challenge! Please remember to vote on Tuesday!
