    While we are waiting … Beshear is up in Kentucky Gov race with 96% of the vote in, up 12,000 votes. Much to many people's surprise.

    And to some disappointment, I'm getting my butt kicked in the 1st district in Englewood.

    • kwtreekwtree says:

      Sorry, Blackie (Bobby?). My candidate Christopher Arlen (Ward 4) is also down by 30 points. Lakewood City Council and Mayor races seem to be breaking for incumbents. Jeffco results here.

      If we can dodge the Ramey Johnson as Mayor bullet, that will be a relief. 

      • Blackie says:

        It broke both ways for incumbents and challengers in Englewood. There will be two incumbents returned and two challengers voted in. 

        I am embarrassed that Englewood's 1st District could not get above a 1000 votes in an important election such as this one. 

        • Blackie says:

          Update: Englewood 1st really did get over the 1000 vote edge! All the way to the 1300's! (That number is the one the City Clerk said would be the in the neighborhood for the First). Still embarrassing–supposed to be about 5000 voters in the district and barely muster 20%?

        Regarding Lakewood Ward 4,  I voted for Barb Franks. Did not see any reason to toss her aside.

    Mike Coffman is winning (won?) Aurora mayor race.  Ughh.

    I’ll bet you couldn’t pull a straight pin out of McConnell’s rear end with a 4 wheel drive John Deere tractor tonight.

    In Lake County we voted to do our part with a BEST grant. 66% favor building a new school. Pre school, K, 1,2 . Hooray, I worked hard on this; $, letter to editor, canvassed, social media

    • MADCO says:

      Well done!
      Local races like touch lives directly and hugely.

    • MichaelBowmanMichaelBowman says:

      Great news, Gray! BEST is a wonderful program (thank you Andrew).  We’ve completed the new complex in Idalia (my school) and we’re in the midst of the $35mm upgrade to the Wray K-12 complex.

      Cool beans, Gray. Congrats!

      It seems Mesa county ( dist. 51) is doing a bunch of school improving, too. I don't follow the politics of Happy Valley much anymore so I haven't a clue if they are using BEST funds, but it doesn't matter, as long as our schools keep improving.

        The know-nothings in Mesa County triumphed again, voting down a bond issue for a new Grand Junction High School. Built in 1956 and expanded haphazardly over the years while it slowly sinks into a marsh, it has 71 different doors, rotting foundations and a sewer smell throughout.

        District 51 has had only one success with a BEST grant. With public “support'' like the above, no wonder.

    SB 181 and its shifting of certain regulatory authority over oil and gas extraction to local government kinda made local elections great again. We Broomfielders delivered a sound electoral fuck-you to frackasaurus candidates for mayor and city council, although the frackasaur mayoral candidate was running from cover and still has a couple of years left on her current city council term.

    Looks like the repugnant Proposition DD is winning, but still too close to call. Shame about CC, but hey, Coloradans love TABOR and that's not going to change significantly enough to get a measure like CC past the finish line.
