Civil Discourse Now Discusses Election Predictions
Civil Discourse Now discusses my election predictions. It should be noted that my revised prediction of Ballard winning 51-47 was right on the money. So too was my prediction that the Democrats would win all four at-large seats and have a council majority. But the Democratic majority I picked was 18-11 and the majority turned out to be 16-13. In my defense, I never dreamed that Democratic County Chairman Ed Treacy would fail to go after Republican councilors on the highly unpopular corporate welfare and insider deals they voted for. They were sitting ducks and he failed to take a shot.
