The Ideal Candidate

ByBenjamin Thornton

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
NAT DRENNAN IS IN THE RACE OF HIS LIFE - FOR THE LOWEST OFFICE IN THE LAND. Local politics in Newhazel is gridlocked by decades of domination by a powerful octogenarian female Mayor. Nat Drennan, a young idealistic businessman, wants in and determines that the best place to start is at the very bottom – by running for school board trustee. What he doesn’t know is that his opponent is a puppet for an organized crime family that has long been getting rich by manipulating school board contracts. But there are others with eyes on the school board’s money as well. The danger and violence escalate while Nat and the voting public remain blissfully unaware of the storm in which he is caught – between two mobs, a shadowy arm of the Mayor’s municipal government, and a gangster rapper and his entourage. Cutting political satire, edge-of-your-seat suspense, a cast of remarkable true-to-life characters,: The Ideal Candidate is a remarkably funny reminder that all politics is local.
