The bad news is D'Agostino won. The good news is the damage he has done at the BOE is over.

Congratulations Ned. Mike D was the lesser of two evils and although he fully supports the concept of doubling dipping the public realized the alternative would have been worse. JF may have been a more independent voice but his inability to conduct himself in a civil manner did him in. You can bet Jackson et all will not be sleeping well and my guess won't run again for fear of an embarrassing defeat. Mostly congratulations to the voters for breaking the grip of the DTC and its endorsements.

ummm, if you read Mike D's literature, you would know that Jackson endorsed him.

I'm pleased for my high school chum, Ned Burt. Ned will prove to be an enthusiastic, engaged, and caring public official. Every success for longevity in your new role!
