I find it fitting that on this 68th Veterans Day, election officials are calmly and methodically counting our votes – votes that will determine the course of our nation.
Today is meant to thank those who have served to protect America’s cherished democracy, as well as to honor those who have given their lives in service to our country.
Their sacrifice and service holds even greater meaning in today’s climate.
The fact that there were very few problems or baseless accusations of fraud in this week’s elections across the country tells me that the shaken confidence of many of us is being restored – along with faith in our government by the people.
New vote tally results looking better
Meanwhile, in our local democratic exercise, my race to become your next state senator remains tight, but hopeful.
