What a relief to see the Democrats back on board. Looking around the village lately, it looked like we were a resoundingly Republican village (I thought I was just completely out of touch).
Last year, I was shocked when Jim Steinberg was “placed” in the position of Trustee when he hadn’t won that position in the voting polls. Did the opinion of the voters not matter? I was concerned that we were going to see an attitude in our new local government of “What the public says doesn’t matter.” Thankfully, the voters of the village spoke up clearly yesterday. Obviously, I was not as far out of the loop as I thought.
