Just so you know

It looks like Mike lost today. We don't have the numbers yet (the town committees is to stupid to actually put numbers out there ), but there's only 1 out of the 5 candidates that were running at large that looks good. However, there are 503 absentee ballots that have to be added on to the total list, but it doesn't look good for Mike. We came home and he's already asleep, isn't it nice to be able to sleep even when you loose an election. It wasn't the money ( he was getting $44.76 a month for being on common council) it's more that each candidate had to campaign alone and since Mike can't go door to door maybe that hurt him more than what he has done to help the city in the two years that he was on the common council.  But, I will get the final numbers and let you know soon.


  1. I'm sorry for your loss. My husband, an incumbent councilman in a small town also lost tonight. It wasn't a good year for Democrats in NJ it seems. I'll keep reading...

  3. I believe that President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Senator Reid are making it almost impossible for Democrats right now. Most of the nation is furious with them and they continue to bury their heads in the sand.

    If the Republicans were competent they would have a complete whitewash next year but don't count on that. The Democrats best hope right now is Republican incompetence to take advantage of the moment since it isn't likely that Obama, Pelosi, or Reid will change. Narcissists never do and the Republican establishment is about as responsive to the people as the Democrats. Both parties seem oblivious to what the people want.
