Election Night

By Bart Haggin

Election night parties by Democrats are not what they used to be but Tuesday night was a little more than what was expected at The Hamilton Studio (aka Toad Hall).  The long ago converted school gym was packed at $10 a head and the crowd was really unexpectedly large so while the food was in short supply the people didn’t seem to mind and the “spirits” kept flowing nicely.

“New comers” were in abundance and rather surprising in such a somber time  for Democrats but maybe that was because of the tough economic conditions.  Toad Hall is great venue for many conversations at the same time and they were “animated”.  The usual Democratic suspects were there too, while a few of the prominent candidates took a pass.  Several “non-partisan” city council members were there as well.

The energy level was high for all in attendance.  The three most successful candidates were Bonnie Mager, Andy Billig and the real surprise, Frank Malone.
