The news was not readily available in the newspaper this morning. The race was too close. Who would have thought that despite all the money invested in colorful glossy flyers, multiple mailings, and email blasts coupled with the rallies and visits by multitudes of campaign supporters standing on street corners waving signs that one of the candidates who seemed to have less money and seasoned organizers would come out the winner. It just goes to show that in a small town like Annapolis, every vote counts and personal contact and personal perception is very important. Now we are on to the big race. If you have the time to attend a forum and can hear the three speak on the issues, it should prove helpful in deciding for whom to cast your vote in November.
And the Winner is….

One thought on “And the Winner is….”
I just came from Zina Pierre’s press conference, where she announced that she was leaving the race, due to the stress of the campaign on her business and family, especially the media attention on her ailing parents. It’s a shame that she feels it necessary to drop out of the race, given the historic nature of her win, but I understand her decision. Even in small-town Annapolis, it seems, politics is not for the faint-hearted.
