|Totals shown do not include provisional ballots|
WOW! Look at last night's BoE election results!
Provisional ballots have not been counted, so GA is not going to throw a party-yet. What has been counted according to Horsey are the VBMs, reflected in the revised election totals posted by the Hudson County Clerk late last night. .
Based on these numbers, the 'big picture' in the post-Carmelo Garcia era battle-for-VBMs is clear.
Frank Raia is the re-anointed King of the Harvest.
Branco's slate- Murray, Waiters and Danzker, was backed by former HHA Executive Director Carmelo Garcia and 2nd Ward Councilwoman Beth Mason.
|YOU COULDN'T, YOU DIDN'T, WE WATCHED YOU|
The Branco-Mason-Garcia muscle bought "Parents for Change" a 4th place (Murray), 7th Place (Waiters) and 8th Place (Danzker) finish.
Nope, Pupie has emerged as the clear 'muscle' in town as Numero Uno Farmer of the VBM Harvest, moving the 8th Place Rhodes-Kearns all the way to 7th Place!
While GA makes light of this, it's no joke.
'Word' is that Raia was miffed at Waiters and would not 'reward' voters if they picked her for the 3rd slot. What if Raia had 'advised' voters to choose Waiters? Patty Waiters would likely have bumped Angley out of third place and taken a seat on the School Board.
Folks, until the Feds interrupt harvest time (yeah, right), Reform must turn out in numbers to overwhelm the Vote-Farmers' VBM crop.
More on the election later.
