Hi Bella We are waiting for the official results before we submit a report. But I'm glad to know you are tuning in regularly. That's what I like to hear. I think if you actually read The Neighborhood News you will find that I reported it was exceedingly difficult to unseat an incumbent as the current elections have proven. I reported that there was a wind blowing and the fact that 5 brave candidates stepped forward to challenge Wesson was an indication of this. I do not need to eat crow because I never predicted Wesson would lose. I have to say I was hoping for more of a challenge but none of these candidates had the kind of money it takes to unseat an incumbent. I did get emails complaining about Wesson phone harassment, a photo of Wesson posters being stapled over other candidates posters and more. Please remember....all of the officials in Bell were voted in again and again. I keep getting information sent to me and support for ongoing Eye On Wesson columns. Rest assured it will continue. BUT I genuinely appreciate opposition. Keeps me on my toes!
