Challengers Lead In Sunnyside Council Races
November 3, 2009 Leave a comment
All three contested City Council seats in the City of Sunnyside have the challengers leading the incumbents in votes on Election Day. While I lead my opponent by only one vote, the other two districts have a larger margin separating the candidates.
Almost 900 ballots have been counted. We will have to see how the late arriving ballots break during the count tomorrow.
The bottom line is that the challenger is leading in every race, just like we would like.
Thanks to everyone that has supported the campaigns in each district, your hard work is appreciated.
