    It's refreshing to see the voters reject corruption.

  • HR Block

    It would seem by rough calculation that Jack Evans has had an overwhelming victory in one crucial category spending north of $300.00 per vote!

    Congragulations to the consultants at 270 Strategies or lack thereof("they worked for Obama" - although it appears not much thankfully - somebody better warn Texas), Josh Brown and his crack team of "One Direction" groupies.

    Will be interesting to see a more informed and careful analysis.

    Jack spent $1.4 million on 4,000 votes.

    in this town he'd could have beat the other white dude buy simply advertising that he'd slip c-notes to those who voted for him instead of overpaying campaign staff


  • lame duck confit

    The next eight long months are going to suck with an embattled scorned thin skinned incumbent and beat down EOM staff (hurriedly revamping and firing off resumes while on the tax payer's clock) with four councilmembers who piled on and spelled his doom hoping to get things done for their ward constituents. Corrupt Gray administration is not going to look good on the top of any cv.

    if you thought the last three years were oppressive, just wait for real dysfunction

    Obama is the most arrogant socialist ever to step foot in the white house. wake up all you libs. its time to go back to the strong and safe America we once knew.

  • suzgirl

    even though his cronies are deserting him one by one its time to get rid of them also.
