The Last Post

I finally discovered on the Board of Elections website--they've probably been up there for a long time, but I just discovered them--the write-in results from the November election.

In the First Ward, one person wrote in Ralph Nader for mayor, and 33 people wrote in me for alderman--either in Column 8 (Sterling) or Column 9 (Cheddie). (The BOE did not specify how many votes in each column.)

In the Third Ward, 10 people wrote me in for mayor.

In the Fifth Ward, one person wrote me in for mayor and one person wrote me in for alderman in Column 8--Doc Donahue's slot!

I thank you--all 45 of you--for going to the polls with your writing implements in hand and making the extra (albeit symbolic) effort to vote for me. I love you all!

After the first of the year, I'll be reporting on the goings on at City Hall, and elsewhere in the county as it affects Hudson, on my new blog, The Gossips of Rivertown. At the moment, it's still under construction, but I'll let you know when the first post appears.

Meanwhile, I extend my very best wishes for a rich and happy--and perhaps even prosperous--new year to you all.

As a researcher of Alice B. Neal Haven's work I'm always happy to see her name appear! Mrs. Haven later expressed sorrow at the harshness of some of her characterizations in "Gossips" but I'm glad we still get to enjoy this humorous work. Google books has made a copy available. Enjoy, and thanks for posting.
