Congratulations President Bare!

Charles Bare was elected Council President today defeating Andy Terhaar in a runoff.  I sincerely hope that Charles will work with his supporting council members to restore the legislative branch to its rightful stature as a separate but equal branch of our City government.

Council was also clear in its vote that a President should only serve one consecutive term.

Outgoing President Terhaar is now free to resume his role as Grand Champion of the Royal Turkey Heads.

Andy, this picture is now the annual official kickoff of the Thanksgiving holiday for my blog!  Enjoy your Thanksgiving Andy and congratulations on completing your term.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I always loved that picture. Still have the hat. Wear it every turkey day. Congrats to Councilman Bare. I voted for him so he better do a good job.

Congratulations, indeed! Perhaps this will be a temporary reprieve from the "go along to get along" city council. Hopefully Bare will use this as a springboard to become mayor.

Ashton the Terrible got elected twice. I'm assuming it must be Mr. Bare's integrity and willingness to do what's right that makes him a less viable candidate than the failed real estate investor hand model. Yeah, Hayward's going to be a tough act to follow said no person ever who has a brain!
