Ballots are out and even though most already know who they will vote for, many are still undecided on who should replace outgoing county councilors, David Madore and Tom Mielke, Madore resoundingly defeated and Mielke retiring after many years in public service.
I also wish to thank all four candidates in County Council races for their running clean campaigns and not resorting to the mudslinging we see all too often in legislative races and previous County Commission campaigns.
The primary election narrowed the field to John Blom and Tanisha Harris for the District 3 and Roman Battan and Eileen Quiring for District 4.

I guess last year’s fateful write-in effort running Liz Pike for the Council Chair position he lost should have been a tip-off.
Waking up this morning, though, I see Mr. Madore, either by a little well applied common sense or that someone slapped him upside the head with a reality check, decided to delete the smearing post against John Blom, posted below and announcing that he intends to take a break until August 15.
