The Wicked Witch is dead
Okay, not really. Nobody died. I'm just happy that the election is over, and S didn't win. Not even close.
I ended up voting for A, R, and M. The winners were A, R, and J. J got 69 votes. M only got 26. D, who didn't send me a flyer (or anyone else that I spoke to) got just 7 votes. I can't remember what the others got, but S got less than 50, and I think the other two got about as many. I should check on that later. Of the people who voted, 85 chose A, and 88 wanted R.
I was worried about choosing between J and M. It was hard, and I was afraid that the votes split between them would allow S to remain. J ran last year, and it seems like he got more votes last year when he didn't win, but I guess more people in general voted last year.
M can run again next year, if he wants to. I was surprised that of all the people who didn't win last year, only T and J ran again this year.
Of course, the person I most want gone runs again next year. Or, at least, next year is when his term is up, and I assume that he will run again.
There's a story going around that S was not a good loser, and almost had to be carried away from the voting area. I was in the general area, and I would have thought if there was anything interesting like that going on that I would have heard it a couple of doors down, but I did not. So I don't know if it's true. But it wasn't even close, and a recount wasn't going to help, so I don't know what it was that she supposedly hung around to complain about.
Next year should be interesting.
