I got elected!

Can you believe it? I actually got elected to school board on my first try. I picked a good year to run given the country's mood about incumbents. Of six candidates, I was the second highest vote getter with 6614 votes. The top finisher had 6642, so it was pretty darn close. One incumbent was re-elected but had significantly less votes than we did.

Thanks to all of you for your support! I'll probably need it even more when I find out what I've gotten myself in to. I have accomplished several things this year that I never thought I would, and you've been there every step of the way encouraging me. That means a lot.

Well, I'm off to pick up my campaign signs before someone writes a nasty letter to the editor about littering!

Congratulations! Look how many people have faith in you. Other than us, I mean. Your school district is lucky to have you there to offer your wisdom and your humor.
