Waiting for the results . . .

I'm anxiously waiting with many others for that first release. Now that there are no polling places I wish we didn't need to wait until 8:15, but no such luck.  It is now 7:50 and the board meeting has ended, so a half hour of waiting.  At least I am in good company with more on the way.

Not good! More voters, but only a 51% yes vote.  The optimism we were feeling was obviously misplaced.  This hurts, there are so many people that put in hundreds of hours, so it feels like a kick to the gut.  It's not good to dwell on it now, I'll need time to reflect and support the board in making decisions on moving forward.

We did our best. It's tough out there and no one can say we did not run a good race. Earlier, I mentioned one of things people were saying was, "They will never do the tract system, they are bluffing." Well... we shall see folks won't we? People have a hard time "paying it forward" these days, but I still think people mean well, deep down.
