  1. Congratulations to all the winners! I guess some candidates over estimated the effectiveness of political signs.

    1. My thoughts exactly! My mailbox was cluttered with mailings and streets were populated with signs from one candidate. Didn’t seem to make a difference. So glad this election is over!

  2. Local citizens are overwhelmingly pleased with the direction the area is headed in. It doesn’t sound like it out in public, but the numbers are obviously there.
