Election Returns

May 6th, 2009 (06:43 pm)

current mood: tired

Congratulations to newly elected Alexandria School Board member Mimi Carter!

But I'm bummed that only four of our six City Council candidates won. We've had an all-Democratic City Council for some time now. Now our four Democrats will be joined by a Republican and an Independent who votes like a Republican. Mayor Bill Euille, also a Democrat, won re-election, but he was running unopposed so that was no surprise.

I was handing out Democratic sample ballots outside the polling place. I don't know where they found the guy who was handing out Republican ballots, but he was clearly not from Alexandria. This guy thought the City of Alexandria was part of Fairfax County! So why did he think Alexandria was voting for a City Council and School Board??? Remarkable.
