One good term deserves another

In your face, Colbert! Perhaps Simon would have been nicer, but that wasn't what 2,201 Carbondale voters were looking for in a Mayor, so Cole won!

Sheila did make a nice concession phone call to Brad before he proclaimed victory to his supporters at the Copper Dragon.

I didn't have much time to speak to him, since he was surrounded by well-wishers and media most of the time. But he posed for a photo with Peter the Great and me, looking forward to great progress in next four years.

I hope Sheila will continue to be a part of it. Will you, Bloggee?

The way I see it, some eggs were broken during Cole's first term. Now it's time to make an omelette.

Well, congratulations to Cole and his supporters. They waged an effective campaign and the voters of Carbondale made their wishes clear. Now its time to move on with the business of the city.

Now we'll see if Cole sticks with those campaign promises he made. How long before we get those 6 new code inspectors, Mr. Mayor? We'll be watching.

The good news for you is that your shot is much better then the shot on my blog. The bad news is that I got a picture of Nicole Sack in town for a visit and she is cuter then the 3 dudes in your photo by far.

The Mayor looks frightened. What did you guys say to him?

First, Peter I agree with you, she's much nicer to look at than you three :), and I also agree with [], the Mayor looks "sandwiched in," what did you and Peter do to the Mayor Dave?

Jokes aside, nice pics Peter and Dave, for those of us who didn't make it to the Copper Dragon, it gives some idea of what we missed. Dave, will you post pics of the event on the Mayor's website?

Agreed. I wish I could have been there too. Congrats to the Mayor, and thanks for the coverage during the race, Dave and Peter, you guys made it interesting.
