YESSS!!! Mike Downey wins the race for Sheriff with 66% of the vote, according to the latest figures at Heraldo's. Looks like I was pretty close with my prediction of a landslide for Downey. I figured it would be closer to 70%, earlier on, though.
Then all the Hislop signs started showing up and I'll admit they had me worried. After all, we do have an awful lot of flakes living up here and their numbers seem to be increasing every day. Heck, Hislop got over 40% of the vote. Just goes to show how many flakes do live up here.
But not to worry. It's over now and the good guys won, at least in the Sheriff's race.
