Another general election is in the books. Despite an extremely low voter turn out recorded across the area, and a lack of contested races to decide, results of the election prove once again that every vote does count as a race for mayor of Middle point was decided by just 3 votes. Voters across the area who did take the time to vote were kind to requests they saw for new or renewal tax issues. Virtually all of them, including an Allen County Children Services request, and issues supporting 911 services and mental health in Putnam county were approved, many by big margins. There appeared to be some sentiment for change among the electorate with a pair of current Delphos school board and 2 Lima city council members losing bids for full terms in office. The most interesting comment of the day may have come from President Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale. After the president traveled to Kentucky on Monday for a rally for republican governor Matt Bevinm Parscale described Bevin as an unpopular governor. The election did prove that not everyone keeps up on current events prior to going to the polls. In a race for president of Lima City Council, incumbent John Nixon defeated Josiah Matthews by an unofficial margin of 1,965 to 1,094 2 months after Matthews dropped to of the race. If you were engaged enough to vote this year, I applaud you.To paraphrase a saying you’ve probably heard before, by doing so you have earned your right to complain. That’s the way I see it.
