It’s been a week since the primary election.
I offer my congratulations to the winners and good luck to those who move on to the general election coming in November. May you earn a real mandate by the majority of the voters in the county for the general election.
I am told that a 37 percent turnout for any election is huge. And, judging from the sheer exhaustion of Linda Furnish and the entire staff at the Harrison County Clerk’s office when the counting was officially complete Tuesday night, I have no doubt that it was, indeed, a large turnout.
