JohnA (who was elected to the East Side Highway District board Tuesday night): Well, it's clearly not a mandate but by 28 votes I was able to prevail in the election. I'd like to thank everyone who voted and made your choice heard (Tuesday night). Now it's time to get to work, together, to make Eastside an even better place to live. Thanks especially to Terry Sverdsten for his many years as Commissioner. Please feel free to keep coming to this page as I'll use it as a platform to seek public input on all things Eastside.
