    Thank you for the timely posting of the election results. I take note that both primary and final election results were posted within 90 minutes of the polls closing.

    Also thanks for posting the summary sheet, but it would be much useful if you told us which machines the votes represented. Would it be possible to add that information?

    Well done!!

    Both men deserve our thanks,

    Not easy to spend the time and money to run for elective office. It shows a
    real determination to advance the union forward in these difficult times.

    I would like thank James and Paul personally
