While not much has changed on the national political scene. What has happened are lines are more deeply drawn and nerves are on edge. I’m all for a 59 day cooling off period . I want to get through the holidays with out killing my relatives if you do not mind.
On the local scene it is much brighter and a whole lot less partisan. Margo is doing the happy dance in Yucca Valley over taking on and whipping the dog doo out of the establishment there. Now her gang must work with that same establishment to come up with alternative funding sources for that sewer problem. Good Luck.
Over here in 29… funny how the worm has turned. We could not be happier about Cora Heiser getting top votes. She managed to eek out a first place finish in a truly equally divided vote. It took 4 years and two voting cycles but I’m thinking we might well have beat the snot out of the “Good Ole Boy” Network. Well until the next time anyways. Our side has at least two years to straighten up this place and get us back on track.This is a cyclic thing, we need to not gloat and get down to work if we plan to keep this local victory.
Other races turned to be a mixed bag. Win some loose some.
I am going to go out on a limb here and say this is a sea change for local media. There has been a power shift. Citizen Journalism truly won the day. It was the opinions and views of local citizens posted here and in other on line venues that made the difference in all elections. I came out win 3 (Heiser, Klink, Avels) – lose 2 (Imus, Derry), but others here did better on their endorsements. I am proud to be part of that movement to citizen journalism.
