Well, I am proud to say that the spirit of democracy has not disappeared from Question Mark even if many other things have. It is my privilege to announce the results of today’s town election.
First off, we had a strong turnout for today's election. Despite all of the difficulties in town lately, 1378 of you turned out to cast your ballot!
On the first ballot item, the filling of the vacant Town Council seat, assistant librarian Gerald Ames beat Owen Brandt decisively, capturing 84% of the vote.
On the referendum regarding the development of an ice ring, the town has responded negatively with a resounding 76% voting no.
And finally, as to the proposed amendment to the state constitution, the measure had near-unanimous local support with 96% of the vote.
As the Acting Chair of the Voting Committee, I would like to thank our election volunteers for making sure that today was a great day for our town and state and for the ongoing American experiment in self-determination.
God bless Question Mark, Ohio and god bless America.
