Congratulations Successful Candidates November 2010
We took a certain amount of heat because we’ve only written grinding assessments of public office, and discouraging cautions to the victors, all of whom worked very hard to get where they are.
We’ll pause to note that the vanquished worked just as hard to get where they are, so congratulations to them, too.
Still, there should be a recognition of your victory, some so hard fought that only a handful of people could have changed the victory by changing their minds. Contests like that are often called “epic”.
And, congratulations for joining the ranks of those relative few people who step forward to make their communities better. Sure, the insurance and what not are nice, but each of you must have been motivated by a desire to do well by your county people, and for that we salute you!
