Is it really over? Maybe not

After all, what would be the point? Teresa's decision to bow out has been spread all over the news, I even saw it on tv last night, and then what? in the end, she takes office because she received votes on November 17? She would look like the biggest liar. She would end up being the most hated person in town and she would look very foolish for doing this. I don't even think the other Commissioners would work with her if this was to happen, she would be out on an island all by herself. She's a hero now. Besides, she would have to start campaigning again now, knocking on doors, sending out mail, etc.
I really believe that she is over the whole charade of wanting to be a City Commissioner, what many felt was to be a puppet of her husband who could not fathom term limits. The news has spread fast.People are happy. It's almost like the part in the Wizard of Oz where the black and white part turns to color. It's like we are out of jail. I joked on Facebook last night saying that I wanna drive around District 2 with pots & pans like they do on Calle Ocho after a big game. It's been a dark time for the Grove.
I am told that we need to get out and vote for Ken Russell on November 17, just to be sure. So hopefully we all will do that. One friend mentioned that the King Mango Strut will be back to the way it was in the past, without the iron fisted control and so much will change around here for the better. But again, let's all go out and vote on November 17. Just to put the final nail in the coffin. If Ken's supporters don't show up, then who knows what will happen.
And one more thing, what is this 51% rule? It's a waste of time and money. Ken won Tuesday's election by getting almost double the amount of votes as Teresa. What is the point of spending millions of dollars more on another election because he received 42% of the vote out of nine candidates, rather than 51%?
I do have to laugh at all these developers and construction people that threw money at the election and got nothing out of it. Love that part. It's not about money guys. It's about quality of life.
