For a campaign waged with very little money, I’m thrilled about getting 45% of the vote. Thanks to all the supporters and volunteers who engaged their neighbors about the local issues, then brought those people to the polls.
I plan to keep attending meetings and blogging about what goes on there. Once I committed to running for office, I realized that the media rarely attends and even more rarely reports on local government. Someday there will be a traffic light at Friedenstahl Avenue and Route 191. I pledge to keep everybody posted on the progress, or the lack of progress. Hopefully the former. There’s a Supervisor’s meeting tonight at 7:00 — I’ll be there with my pencil sharpened.
Congratulations to Donna Hirst for winning a 6 year term as Supervisor. I wish her the best.
