I have been asked today whether or not I am happy with the election results. I responded that I was cautiously optimistic. I believe the better candidates were elected, but now is where the rubber meets the road. Now we see if we elected statesmen or politicians.
In all elections, victory or defeat, persistent attention by the electorate must be maintained as new representatives assume their new roles. We must hold them to their promises and principles and serve as a constant reminder of their duty to the citizens they represent.
So, to the victors of the Nov. 09 election I say, Congratulations now get to work and lets see some progress.
