An incredible accomplishment. Makes me feel a little inadequate that I aced all my subjects in the third grade.

I'm not certain that Mr. Soliz's mere 80 votes would be enough to swing that election in any direction. It is interesting that Mr Soliz garnered more votes in his city council race against Lewis Neitsch than he did in a very similar county district.
If anything, that particular commissioner district has certainly created some animosity between the losing candiates.
Soliz finishes dead last. 31 early votes and only 49 votes the day of the election. Your 15 minutes of political fame ended last night.
Take a look at their board of directors and leadership of the board. It's 90% of the problem.
Am I missing something? Where are the results?
Riverboat-According to the unofficial results, the only thing Polasek won was early voting. On election day, each precinct in District 3 went to Hyak.
Your other comment about "mean spirited"? Not at all. Mrs. Soliz has entered into the public forum now and she's fair game of any criticism.
I'm surprised you didn't think the Joe Truman comment about loving the city health insurance plan was mean spirited. Think about it. It's Truman's sole inspiration to stay on the council. Tax payer supported health insurance for his family.
Last. I need to "shut up"? I probably will when you will.
The city election is over. Finally. And now some parting comments for those involved:
Emett: Congratulations. Persistence pays off after 3+ political failures. Word of advice, when you get on council, “shut up.” Listen before you speak and know that you represent all of District 1. Oh yeah, check out the health insurance the city will provide you by being elected. Joe Truman loves it.
Denise: You didn’t really think you could pull this off did you? You occupied most of your time pandering to the arts groups and special interests. Your council votes came back to roost. Next time you use Emett to get you elected, just know he will stab you in the back when the time comes.
Josephine: Good luck. You’ll have plenty of wiggle room in the special chair the city bought for Gabriel. Speaking of wiggle room, be yourself, not your son. He’s facing his own problems in the primary and being a notary public is probably not enough to sustain him in tough times ahead.
Gene: 23 vote margin. Tough race for an Anglo in your district, but Josephine did not get a mandate. Don’t give up, but in the future, push back, it won’t hurt.
Paul: 90 vote spread and you lost every precinct in your district. Wipe that smug look off your face and put your mayoral aspirations on the shelf. It will never happen.
John: Your entry in the race proved that 673 people are tired of Paul’s arrogance. Well done, sir. Well done.
David: Thank you for a clean race. Much better than the name calling and mudslinging you did 3 years ago against James Martinez. This is your third term. Make it count. Vote smart and don’t be just a Ron Paul. Think it out.
Lewis: What were you thinking?
I almost could have voted for Denise until I read this letter. Thank you Ms Steen for helping me make up my mind. It's your arrogance that cost Denise at least one vote.
I didn't vote for Denise three years ago and I didn't vote for Emett the last three times he has ran. They are both puppets. Neither has an original thought and each would sell their young to be elected.
