State Senate speculation-and a local raceI should now note that the GOP has managed to barely hold on to the State Senate. The question of the hour is whether Ron Ramsey will be chosen as Speaker of the Senate or whether Mike Williams will betray his constituents for a second time and doom himself to defeat at the hands of Mike Faulk in two years.
Call me crazy, but I am hedging my bets with Ramsey-I think Wilder is finally going down.
Finally, a local race result:
White Pine Alderman
Mickey Smith 293 X
Fred Taylor 288 X
Ryan Cavanah 247 X
Carolyn Voiles 237
I was pleased that Mickey and Fred won. After Carolyn stood with Mickey over at the school all day yesterday campaigning like gangbusters, I thought she deserved a term in her own right (she had been filling a vacant seat). She is a sweet lady...I hope she runs for Alderman again...just not on the same slate with yours truly.
