Title: [GreenYes] Re: Personal News - I won election!
Gary: Congratulations on your election. Its no small accomplishment.
I ran 10 years ago against a 20 year incumbent to try to shake things
up in my conservative, Republican enclave. I had my a.. handed to me
on a platter. So I went another route, working to get things done
regardless of politics and now we are a Zero Waste County with strong
support from both sides. Best wishes for further success in guiding
your community. Alan Hale
