Diary #14 Campaign is Over.

Diary #13 turned out to be unlucky. I lost the election. Actually thought I was going to win, but the old boy network came out of the woodwork and the final tally was 209 - 265. Worked hard for six months to show voters I was serious about doing something positive for SJC, but couldn't overcome 24 years of intrenched incumbency. One good thing about the election - people voted NO on the BAD THREE amendments that I campaigned against that would have strangled the town, county and school budgets.

Short Documentary shot around Silverton

Hello all, I teach several media classes at a university in Oklahoma. One of them is how to shoot and edit sound-slides. Here is a link to one I shot this summer in the Silverton area. Hope you enjoy.

Campaign Diary #12. Important dates next week.

A little over three weeks left until the election on Tuesday, Nov. 2. Two important dates next week: Monday, Oct. 18, early voting begins; Tuesday, Oct. 19, Candidates Forum night, at Town Hall from 7-9 pm. We need everyone who's voting for Bob for County Commissioner to vote early. If we know who has voted we can concentrate on encouraging those who have not voted to get to the polls. In order to win we need all of our supporters to vote.
