Colleen Corona and Pat Goodman have my vote. The only two selfless people in the race.

At 8am as I was driving to work, I noticed that the typical "Vote Today" signs were missing from their normal locations. DId the DPW simply forget, or is something else going on here? Also - take a look at the Town website; I challenge you to find current information relative to 'Where & When' voting takes place.

You're right on Bob. All you have to do is get in with the movers and shakers behind the scenes, the people who only meet behind closed doors, out of the public eye. Then the signage is "forgotten" but your minions, send out supportive emails to everyone in town. It's Chicago politics in Easton with just a different money man behind it.

Wow....Congrats to Ms. Corona on her massive well faught win. Dan Murphy is a low blow artist who won because Goodman and Malone split the vote against him. He did not deserve to win. Interesting to note that Dan, the incumbent candidate, had 2000 people vote against him.

Classy thing to say Jimmy. Did he beat you at golf?
