Preliminary Election Results

Right on. Preliminary counts suggest that Verner and Rush won. Nothing's final yet, but despite a huge infusion of money and mean jabs/ads by their opponents in the last few weeks of the election, looks like they came out ahead. The fact that voters here were not swayed by the money machine and the Rovian-style spin jobs they had to endure gives me hope.

In fact, I am downright inspired by the fact that the folks of Spokane appear to have elected these two progressives. This is not the town I grew up in. I think this is the first step to building a great city for our kids.

Now the real work starts.
