27.8.08

We won!!!!!

I finally heard about the votes on the suicide barrier - and we won by the slimmest of margins. And I really mean that: 50.13% in favor, 49.87 % against. A total of 4,147 votes.
Now we wait, though, because the Bridge Authority won't decide until October at the earliest how to proceed.
From what I have heard, this is the first time there's been such a concentrated effort to get that barrier built. Let's hope it works this time around.
Thank you to everybody I've pestered about voting. It really did make a difference.
