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.
