There were obviously many disappointed voters Tuesday evening. when the numbers came in. I didn't see this happening judging on the receptions I was getting at the doors. People were very positive & supportive. I ran a campaign that I can be proud of. I don't know what I would have done differently.
I didn't seek the endorsements of the Fire Fighters
Sherry thought that I may have been too supportive of Scott Walker's fiscally conservative agenda, and that it cost me votes. She's probably right! If somebody really knows me, they know that I will support and do the right thing. I will not compromise my values to gain someone's vote. My vote is not for sale. She said I can't help the people if I'm not elected. She's right, but I will still try.
I and others will be watching the Common Council more closely from now on. We will encourage others to find time to attend the meetings to watch their representatives in action. They will likely be surprised & disappointed as to how they behave. They will witness the arrogance and disrespect to one another and to their constituents. That's what got voted in, now you have to live with it!
I have stated that I am a Conservative Christian. Though I am disappointed with my loss, I accept that it is in God's plan. I will continue to do my best to help anywhere I can. We'll see where it leads me.
Good luck Steve Taylor. We'll be watching!
