Change Beats Status Quo

adler election night 1114

(Community Matters) Yesterday was historic. thanks to all my friends, colleagues and neighbors for participating in the elections. a guy previously unknown wins 37% of the vote for Austin mayor, his nearest opponent comes in at 30% after 8 years on the dais. Eight months just beat 8 years. Change is going to beat the status quo . . .  in 41 days – with your help. Steve Adler represents change.

I’m bummed about so many of the other races. And, I’m exceedingly proud of my friends who played such pivotal roles in those. History was not on our side. In my life time, no party of any 2nd term president has retained either house of Congress. And, the impact of this sweep is a political tsunami. Very good people, very good friends lost elections last night. We owe them a debt of gratitude for their sacrifices. And, good people won in other elections. Thanks to everyone who participates. It’s part of what makes this country great. xxoo
