Jean-Paul Kierkegaard, head football coach and senior professor of philosophy at Bass Lake University, has announced his intention to run for a seat on Bass Lake Town Council.

Kierkegaard, 61, running on the Communitarian/Situationist ticket, will attempt to unseat incumbent council member M. Adam Bradbury (R-Bass Lake, PhD history).

It could be an epic clash of academic and political polar-opposites, although neither candidate told me that.

Kierkegaard has taught and conducted research at BLU since 1991.

He also made headlines in 2015 by leading the Beaver football team to a 6-5 record, including a 3-5 mark in conference play, including the best start to a season at BLU in recent memory. It was his second season in the position after becoming a surprise successor to Flip Alabama, who resigned in 2014.

Beacon’s sports department made a minor contribution to this.
