Thoughts on the elections
This column is not a place in which your writer may endorse any candidate, but after the fact, certainly remarks of congratulations and thanks are in order.
It is mildly comforting to know that all of the statewide and most of the local races are over. There are some runoffs to take place. Without getting into every race, best wishes are sent to all who will continue or begin to serve. Good luck to the remaining candidates still running. Thanks to all of them and their families for offering themselves for public service.
