John won!

 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!

Congratulations to John!

But my main takeaway was, "Hey, now I know your last name! Activate Facebook stalking skillz!" ;)

Haha, yeah, I opened up myself to that one. But Belfry Bat's fb stalking skills are the major-league kind -- he sent me a friend request a couple of years ago and I had no clue who he was! I think he figured it out from a picture posted on someone *else's* blog, which had my sister-in-law in it. But I may be wrong. If he still follows me, he should chime in to correct me if I'm wrong. ;)

I figure my identity is hard enough to find that only my really loyal readers will figure it out, anyway.
