Ok, so based on the conversations below, and the fact that I finally found the wikipedia source, I have applied the delete tag. It's subjective, therefore bad. See Wikipedia:OC#SUBJECTIVE -- B.S. Lawrence 16:13, 7 March 2012 (EST)
What should this category represent?
- If you are writing about a person, I think a FIRST is something that you would expect to see in their obituary. It would be a statement that you would expect to be a major fact in their cvillepedia article. It would likely be something that can't be repeated next year, or in the next election cycle. --BrianWheeler 14:55, 24 June 2011 (EDT)
- I've got to go with "nothing".
- The definition seems highly subjective. Something you *expect* to see in their obit? Try citing that.
- It's not all people; see Route 20, the *first* paved road.
- Wikipedia has nothing like this, and if they can't figure it out, I think we can't either. The closest they have is WIkipedia:Category:Debuts, which you'll note they can't define, either. Wikipedia:George Washington was the first president, and there's nothing there.
- This is a junk category, nominate for deletion. -- B.S. Lawrence 16:20, 24 June 2011 (EDT)

Why remove this [category]? He was the first candidate to announce, right? -- B.S. Lawrence 11:50, 23 June 2011 (EDT)
- And I think Gary Grant was the first candidate to announce for Albemarle School Board in 2002 for the 2003 election. Is this really what we have in mind by firsts? --BrianWheeler 09:37, 24 June 2011 (EDT)
- It's never been clear to me what you have in mind for firsts. The page says "significant", if you could define that maybe we could straighten it out. I'm not sure it's a valid category at all; often been tempted to offer a delete on it. -- B.S. Lawrence 14:12, 24 June 2011 (EDT)
