When 69% is a disappointment . . .

On election night it was total jubilation that we were passing by such a large margin.  Over the next few days as more votes were counted I and some others were hoping to reach the magical 70%.  It seemed very possible as we inched up to 69.58%, but since then we have inched down to tonight's 69.40% with 14,221 ballots counted and few left.  

I guess if that is disappointment I'll take it every time.  The turn out is well above the county average and the results are a validation of our work and the vision for what the community wants for our young people.  Thank you!

We can now shift our energies to moving the work forward.
