Congratulations Are In Order

Congratulations go out to Juan Garcia for his narrow victory over Gene Seaman. This is amazing in that the Republican redistricting plan was supposed to keep the seat in Gene's hands. Juan will be good for all the people in the district even if a lot of them don't know it yet.

Congratulations also go to Martin DeLeon for his reelection as Justice of the Peace for Precinct 1. Martin garnered 1478 votes to challenger Jimmy Paterson 1164 votes to win by 11.8 percentage points.

I do think that congratulations are also in order for Dale LLoyd since he gets to stay retired. Seriously, for a race against one of the more recognizable names in the county, Dale made a good showing with 42% of the vote. I have no doubt that Dale's candidicy has raised expectations of how a county commissioner should act. That's good for all of us.

Finally, Congratulations to All of You for a job well done. I know from my view that the Democratic activists in the county have finally got their ground game going. Trust me, people outside this area have taken notice of what happened in the county.
