One Vote!

It seems a bit cliche, but one vote really does matter. The difference today was 27 votes. That's basically one vote per precinct. One vote per precinct. Incredible, when you put it in that context, isn't it?

Without the scare tactics from the Mass Dems regarding Judy Flanagan Kennedy's good name, or the completely out of context property tax mailing, this would have been a landslide. I still view it as one.

By the way, I think the Mayor violated section 7-3 of the city charter by turning this into a partisan race, but I guess we'll let that slide. It seems lately that the charter is up to interpretation anyway. :-)

This blog used to get 10 visits per month if I was lucky and I think those visits came from one or two readers. This month, the blog got 300 unique visits. This election has given Lynn's citizens a voice, as any good election should. We've been trying to be heard for a while now, and tonight, we were heard loud and clear. I want to personally thank Judy Flanagan Kennedy for giving us this chance.

Big challenging road ahead, but this mayor is going to take us with her down that road, and that is going to make all the difference.
