Parker Wins, Library Millage wins, Whitmore Lake Schools bond crushed

From the Argus

They’re keeping the doors open seven days a week at the Howell Carnegie Library while Don Parker is keeping his Howell-area County Commission seat after Tuesday’s voting.

....

Parker, a Republican, was appointed to the District 5 Livingston County Commission seat earlier this year to replace Jay Drick, who resigned to become a county District Court magistrate.
He will now serve the remainder of Drick’s term, which expires in December 2014.
Parker, a Howell attorney also served on the board from 2002-2010 and said he would follow in the financial footsteps of his fellow GOP board members.
Democrat Mike Tipton, a Howell Township trustee, and Libertarian Party nominee Michael Brennan were unsuccessful in their bids to crack the all-GOP commission.
“I’m a little disappointed, I thought we’d do a little better,” Tipton said. “It looks like the Republican machine went out and did what it always does.”

It wasn't the "machine." Mike. There wasn't any straight ticket advantage this time with only two things and one partisan race on the ballot. This was old fashion hard work by the Don Parker campaign. Tipton worked hard, but he didn't outwork Don Parker. We didn't take this election for granted. We expected their best and was prepared for it. There would be no "Scott Brown" here. There would be no "Bill Jefferson" here. 

Ont that same note, we've heard a lot about the snide comments from Tipton towards some supporters of Parker. Well, I got one thing to say about that. Keep that trustee seat warm for us in 2016, you won't be getting a free pass this time around.


By the numbers.
