"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Heather managed my finances and filed the statement in February.

The pages were e-mailed to me to-day but sideways on the screen. When I turn the iPad to turn the pages right side up the pages keep turning with the iPad. 

Though the figures  are likely of little interest I will provide them.  There was no solicitation.  I received donations.
One $600 contribution came from a developer 

My lawn signs were re-used three times. The big corner signs  were new in the last election.

The Elections Officer told me I had to put a value on re-used
signs and declare them as  an expense. There's no point in

It's all part of the legalized sham.

John Gallo had the  right to put himself forward as a candidate. The incumbent would have been acclaimed otherwise. Final numbers indicate that would not have been a
true reflection of the community's will.

Gallo presented himself in the campaign  pretty much as he did on Council. Had he been elected the town would have reverted to a previous era. John was a faithful follower of the 
Mormac Regime. He never pretended otherwise. 

So he raised and spent substantially So...what? Italians are highly political and generous.We couldm all share some of
their passion I have enjoyed their support and appreciated  the encouragement.

As far as we can see it was a clean fight. 
Dawe had the support of the current establishment. 
Gallo did not. 
He conceded gracefully.
What was said or done during the term by either candidate
had little relevance in the final tally.

I do not have more to say but I'm happy toprovide a venue.

I agree about it being a fairly fair fight with the possible exception of that blasted door-knocker which seemed to have hurt Evelyn more than the others.
