The Election is Over!

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.
