The Votes are Tallied
I think I will have to have you all start calling me Madame School Committee Member. I spent a good part of the day standing outside waving to voters as they entered the parking lot of the Community Center. My posse took turns standing with me, they included my mom, my MIL, my almost MIL, my dad, and a few of my friends. Even the girls got into waving at cars and waving signs and hitting each other with signs.... I digress. The polls closed at 8 and they had the results up in the window by 8:15. I felt like I did in tryouts for a school sport. You would wait at the gym locker room board for the posting and it felt so great to see your name on the team roster. Well, it was just as good tonight to see my name with so many votes next to it! Obviously, I owe brownies to lots of people! So, now I am on the school committee for the next 3 years anyway. I hope to serve the town well and make some good decisions for the kids in town (and the ones that come from out of town). Just wanted to let you all know before my head hits the pillow. I am not sure what is more sore, my arm from waving, my neck from sunburn or my cheeks from smiling. Either way, it is a good kind of sore!
