A 14% turnout is a bit low but it was good enough to have Sapataro ousted. IMHO the “Cheap Seats” comment did him in as posters and bloggers seemed to pounce on that. Word does get around. Congratulations of the winners, best efforts by the losers and a thank you to Steven Spataro. You may continue your observations of the recent election on week twenty.
The BOS is always a target and now two new victims start Monday.
I wonder how close the write-in campaign did?
Is Roger Brunelle our local answer for Marian Walsh? The article in the Enterprise on Saturday showed we are getting little bang for the buck unless you add in his 298K Let the body of work speak and that is the PTWS that was developed by a high school kid and has not been updated. Bumpkin managed to bang out a respectable looking site in a short time and that was rejected. I have no idea if outsourcing would be cost effective but I can think of a savings of around $85,000 right away.
WOW spent a few days in Europe and it turned out rather well for him. The big news was another nuclear reduction with the Russians and the Europeans tossing a trillion of their own funny money towards the financial mess. Obama did his best to act statesman like and did a commendable job. But controversy did follow him as the other side of the partnership met with the Queen of England. No - not Elton John - the real Queen. Seems like what stirred the pot was the informal greeting by The First Lady. Bravo to her as the Queen seemed to enjoy it and probably secretly wishes TFL was part of the royal brood. Be quite an upgrade IMO.
