Election day was Tuesday. I won 68% to 32%.
There were two "attack mailings." My "favorite" was the one where my picture looked a bit like a "Captain Planet" villain with text to match.
Over the last two months, I knocked on about 2,200 doors. It was slightly more than half of the total in my town. I spoke to more than 1,000 voters at their doors. It was hot and tiring work, but it does give a good picture of what people are thinking and the state of the Town's roads and drainage infrastructure. I think my staff will be happy to stop getting my daily cell phone photos of areas that need work.
Classes start at the end of August. I hope to do some economics blogging over the next few weeks.
