Election season finally draws to a close

November 10, 2012


Some candidates and members of the public may have felt a bit like the little girl named Abby who recently cried to a television news reporter that she’s tired of “Bronco Bama and Mitt Rominy.”

Well, dry your tears. Election 2012 is over.

Several county incumbents didn’t have to sweat re-election because they had no challengers on the ballot. Others, well, they had to sweat it.

“It’s a hard thing to do,” J.C. Campbell said Tuesday night of those who run for public office. “But I applaud them for their service to the community.”

Bed and Breakfast owner Tom Baker, who often attends meetings of the Granbury City Council, said the election of a new face on the council is a statement about “where the city wants to go.”

Let’s hope we all go forward.
