That’s All She Wrote

 

Four years ago today, I wrote my very first post for this blog, about the uncontested D5 Council “race”.  I said:

According to the way the city tabulates votes, Eddy received 97% of the vote (3,069 votes out of 3,167 completed).  However, he really got 54% of the vote if you count those who left their ballots blank.  (3,069 votes out of 5,669 total ballots). 

Imagine what would have happened had we gotten a decent challenger in this race.  I certainly hope Councilor Eddy does.

Well, I guess we all know now.

I’d like to thank everyone who ran.  Whether I agree with you or disagree with you, whether I voted for you or not, you put yourself out there: getting enough signatures to appear on the ballot, knocking on doors, appearing at candidate forums.

Whether you won or lost, whether you’re ecstatic or disappointed or indifferent, we’re all in this together.  You don’t need to be an elected official to have a voice or make a difference.  Get out there and make our corner of the world a little better.

    I am going to make my corner better today by standing on Park Ave (after partying all night at Rosen’s house) with a cheapass sign
