Once you're in office, it’s not all congratulatory messages from friends and neighbors. People who’ve known you for years will start treating you differently. Citizens will expect you to master the details of every issue, or attend every public event in town.

Now’s the time to think about what winning might really mean – and how to make the most of it.
