Thanks for posting this Bret. As a relatively new council member who is
trying to work hard and act in good faith, I am mystified by what is
going on. I am indeed doing as you suggest. It is entirely
discouraging, with the amount of work we have on the table.

In the weeks before the election, the recurring theme that I heard from everyone - every single person - was that we would not go wrong whichever candidate we elected. You had two excellent candidates today and managed to elect neither.

I encourage you to go back to your communities and share with them your own disappointment in this result and look for ways to work together in your years ahead.
