The May Primaries are a couple of moons past, but only recently did we know that our endorsed candidate for Municipal Council in Ward 5 of Monroeville is a winner. Before her appeal, Diane Allison was losing to Marshall Boone, 198 to 196. The final certified result is Allison 198 – Boone 196.
Ms. Allison was one of a group of reformists backed by the Sierra Club in Monroeville. Moral of the story: every vote counts, and with the right candidates environmental groups can have an significant impact in local elections.
