One More Vote

Imagine the surprise that will engulf the candidates in District 4 as they learn there is one more vote to count on an emergency affidavit ballot that could make a looser of a winner for the second committee seat in the Democratic Party.

With Pat Nolan winning by one vote over Chris Premo, that ballot could produce a tie for second and no winner or it could leave the outcome unchanged. Nonetheless, if you're ahead by one vote you'd rather not have any more counting and if you're behind by one vote, you can't wait to see the ballot opened in the hope that you tie your opponent denying him the seat.

If the later occurs when that ballot is opened, the tie would remove the winner of the seat and allow the county committee to appoint anyone they choose to fill the vacancy. Until the ballot is opened, the results of the second seat in District 4 cannot be certified so we'll wait for the impound order to be lifted due to the Congressional race, and the ballot to be opened. You can read about the ballot and the town committee race in today's Record here.

An Angry Town Clerk

Word is that Town Clerk Connolly was playing the blame game yesterday after her big defeat for a committee seat to nemesis Dan Ashley. She was blaming many of her former allies in town hall for her defeat which she's having a hard time dealing with.

Remembering the 9/11 Anniversary

We all pause today to remember the evil perpetrated on our country on this anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

Isn't it amazing that the Vincit website thinks it's OK to stuff mailboxes and Post Office lobbies? It is a FEDERAL offense. That in itself, tells me how desperate they were. I hope they have to answer for this.
Also, I appreciate the candy idea. It is a nice thank you for putting up with all the BS that has had our Town in a stranglehold by these rebels without a cause.
As far as Katty goes- if she is upset NOW- waituntil she gets challenged again for herposition. Better get out that CHAPSTICK, Girlfriend and get to work.
