politieke positie
Explanation:
"public office" is een positie je verkrijgt via openbare verkiezingen. In Amerika is dat niet alleen parlementslid, gouverneur of burgemeester maar vaak ook officier van justitie, sherrif etc.

Een wat vrijere vertaling van de hele zin is: Nadat ik geweigerd had me verkiesbaar te stellen.
