i will leave the analysis to the know it alls. bottom line, i lost by 29 votes. there were 6 write-in votes. among them were Osama, daffy duck, paris hylton and beth solomon. that's the bad news.
the good news is that the voters decided they wanted to shit can leroy thorpe. apparently they had had it up to their eyeballs in poorly delivered services and his obnoxious leadership style.
