Diary #14 Campaign is Over.

By Bob - Posted on 08 November 2010

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.
Want to stay active in community affairs so have applied for school board vacancy. Waiting for some snow so I can go skiing. Thanks to all who supported me. At least it was a clean election - no last minute character assassination postcards altho there were rumors that I'm a trust funder who would close back country roads. Hmmmmm. Maybe that's not such a bad idea. Maggie Gulch?? Stay tuned.
