John came in third out of seven in the town council election -- which means he is one of the three new council members! In additional good news, the other two were both political allies, so this means a big change in the council -- less cronyism, more conservatism. I have high hopes they'll be able to do a lot!
Voters re-elect Tharpe, two newcomers
I have two main thoughts:
First, I am so very proud. Nothing makes me happier than to see those I love get appreciation, recognition, and success. John is so pleased that he actually won something -- and I'm thrilled to finally be hearing "your husband is a great guy!" instead of "I don't know what you see in him," which was the usual reaction in college. Kind of affirms my skill at choosing, you know? Though I always knew he was a good pick. ;)
Second, I am SO GLAD that campaign is over at last! It was exhausting. Now we can finally have some Saturdays as a family again!
