Ward Five Democratic Caucus
6:10pm: I’m so sorry folks, but I cannot attend the Ward Five Democratic caucus starting ten minutes ago at Champlain School. I’m very tired tonight, and it would be too costly of my energy. Hopefully someone will phone or email me the results for publication. Look for an update later.
8:38pm: Thanks to Charity for relaying Shay’s Facebook report. She knows I don’t have the facebook.
According to Shay Totten on facebook, “Incumbent Joan Shannon defeats Carina Driscoll 94-59 in contested Ward 5 Democratic primary.”
59 is a pretty good number of votes to muster that quickly, but the short notice, the Prog baggage, the popular incumbent and her absence at the caucus made winning tonight a real long shot for Carina. The #GotJoan? contingent came out in force.
I’m not sorry I didn’t go. Poopsie made some delicious meat balls and I read some Limony Snicket to the kids.
