Thumbs-up, thumbs-down; it's your choice

Thumbs-up to everyone who ran in the recent city elections. In my view, you're all winners because, whether you won the election or not, you participated and stated your views, and we are all better off for you having the courage of your convictions.

And a big two thumbs up on the quick removal of your signs. I can't find a single one.
