In a result that surprised me, the Stonehill News favorite for a Seat 6 landslide, Roberta Martinez, lost in what turned out to be a close race to the better funded Tom Selinske. I had at first assumed that a disparity in campaign financing might be an explanation, but I just heard from Roberta who informed me that in the end she and Selinske rang in at about $11,000 and $13,000 respectively... so that takes that theory off the table.
|William A. Bibbiani||6,783||46.5%|
|Roberta H. Martinez||6,881||48.3%|
I also find it interesting to look at the total number of votes for each seat.
|Total Votes||Total Abstained||% Abstained|
|Seat 4||14,572||0 (baseline)||0%|
