    GRAND TRAVERSE -- Meet George Golubovskis - the homeless man who's running for Mayor of Traverse City.
    Golubovskis posted a video of himself on YouTube announcing his campaign and has since tallied 1,215 views.


    In the video, he talks issues ranging from the Open Space to the Farmer's Market.
    "We could be the most creative community on the Great Lakes," Golubovskis said. "And the thing is - it's not just creativity and the arts and entertainment centers. It's also creativity with the high tech that's coming to town."
    He promises to get a beard trim, a hair cut and some updated clothing, if elected.

    More empty promises in politics.

    If he does have the qualifications in the article, I don't see why homelessness should be a issue for him unless you need an address to run for the position.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but you have to have residency to run for an elected office as far as I know, so since he's homeless, he technically isn't a resident of the state.

    He'd probably put down a homeless shelter.

    He'd still do a better job than my mayor, at least he's not on crack.

    I think it would be interesting to see this happen, due to the fact of being more for the lower class then helping the upper class.

    If he were to get elected, I would hope his entire campaign wouldn't focus solely on homeless-related topics. Not saying it's a bad cause, not at all, but it's frustrating when someone enters office and only focuses on one thing that they personally feel strongly about, and offers very little support for other important and current matters...

    I'm fairly sure you can be listed as a transient resident of your state for things like this. Maybe I'm wrong or it's specific to WA though.

    The main problem with politics nowadays is that they all come from or have lots of money, usually because they own businesses on the side which tend to "thrive" whenever they get into power ( we all know why ) this makes them out of touch with the harsh reality that alot of people in this world live in, so i whole heartedly agree with this man.

    I'd rather him focus only on something he cares about and knows about, rather than just doing other things that he has no idea about/doesn't give a shit about.

    To be a governor you have to live in your state. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if he's homeless then he doesn't have a registered address, thus he doesn't technically live in Michigan.

    Still very interesting to see. I would love to see him in an election.

    well most people would go for the dual purpose of that and buying stuff without spending their life savings on canadian taxes. I don't know if the festival is good or not but people in my town going there is nothing to go by.
