Daddy on City Council!

on May 14, 2013

Last week was a SUPER busy week. George wasn’t feeling well, Clay’s election for city council was on Tuesday and I had work trainings all week. It was a tough go! But we made it through. Luckily, Clay’s mom came up to help so we had lots of back up!

And the best news of all….Clay WON the election! He got the most votes for ward 5 so he obtained the 4 year seat and will be sworn into office on May 20, the day before his birthday.

George and I hung out with him down at the polls on election day. It rained hard almost all day long, but the mood was cheery! Clay has made so many connections with our neighbors and city officials. I was so proud to see him in action and hear him talk about what he wants to do for our city.

We went to City Hall to hear the results come in and it was so thrilling! Since we are Ward 5, Clay’s results were last. It only took a minute, but waiting was so hard!

Some coverage from the local paper:

    Congrats, Clay! I’m sure your campaign companion and chief supporter, George, was the reason you won. Trusting this is the beginning of a long and distinguished career in politics for you and George. Luanne
