Mike for City Council!!!

Well it's over....well kinda! Mike has won the second seat by 2 votes!! Which means that we have to wait until they count all of the provisional and absentee ballots!! Can you believe it?!?!?!

But, we did have a great night while we waited for the numbers to come in! We were surrounded by people that we love and that have spend so much time helping us. There is no way that we could have done this without everyone else! In fact regardless of how this turns out it has been a great experience. Abdoul and Habiba alone made this worth it. They came here from Somalia 20 years ago, but only became citizens in January. This was their first election. The day after signs went up Abdoul showed up at out house asking how he could help. He took a stack of fliers and with the help of his son passed them out. And when he was all done he returned the extras, along with money saying that he wanted to help. They are what this election process is about. Them AND PEOPLE LIKE THEM who realize the importance of our system of government. I love our country and I love Riverdale!!! And of course I love my wonderful husband who has given his all to this process. He has gotten out of his comfort zone and fought hard because he really feels like he has something great to offer!!!A Few Fun Pictures Of Mike Putting Up Signs!
