"Christmas in April" first cut at the Carbondale Election Results
Looks like Brad won in a walk 56% of the vote. Picture is of your blog host, Brad and Dave More at the Cole Victory party. I almost went and visited Sheila's party, but I wasn't sure I could deal with that many sad State employees in one place.
City council looks like what I predicted before the primary and very acceptable. Haynes, Polhmann and Jack for city council, I sure hope that Lewin doesn't sneak in, but would be fine with Moore (he sure ran a fine campaign). I guess that the voters decided that the city is doing well and added a person who spent lots of time driving a very popular no smoking law. Congratuations to everyone who ran, this race was good for the city.
I listened to Haynes in the debate a little last night and liked what he had to say. I'm going to get off his back for a while, but I still think he needs to go to lunch with Mary Polhmann and talk to her. If they need a referee, give me a call. :)
Major and Rendleman win in District 95 and Elbert Simon off. As Simon loses this time, after winning a number of times before, you have to wonder how many people are reading this blog anyway? :) Did a paper endorse other people, how did we figure out that Simon should go all together and at the same time? I'm sure it wasn't this blog, anyone know what happened?
I found this entry by mistake, but it is interesting now. Found this too, guess he agreed?
I ended up voting for Navreet Kang because I like him and he is my insurance agent, but was fine with the park district results. I have more respect for what is happening over there then I did before the election.
I'll write some more tomorrow, but writing this made me realize how many words I have written about this election. It is kind of amazing.
Any of my Pro-Sheila Anonymous commenter's want to explain how they managed to screw this up so bad or did the voters of Carbondale figure out that they are better off with quality over "my bad"? If you don't have anything to say about this, don't worry, I do.
See you in the morning.
