County Exec Race
Harry Dunbar: 5,256
Ken Ulman: 19,295
No Vote: 2,744
This means that 8,000 Democrats (an amazingly round number) chose not to vote for Ken Ulman out of the 27,295 that made the effort to go vote last Tuesday. Doing the math that means that 29.3% chose not to vote for Ken.
If Ken doesn’t recognize the danger he faces in these numbers he is less smart than I have always thought he was. Ken needs to stop running a front porch campaign and start convincing voters he is listening to their concerns and has a record he is proud of. Lucky for Ken he and other candidates have a great opportunity to do this in the Bloggers Candidates Forum, which will be a way candidates can engage with voters directly, unfiltered by the media. All candidates’ responses will be posted in full and unedited and there is no limit on length. Any voter can then comment on those responses and post their own questions that the candidates can then answer. I hope candidates and voters take advantage of this opportunity.
