We voted to formally go out for bids on a new fire station tonight. We have been working this project for a long time and the stars finally aligned to get it done.
Now for final preparations to solicit bid packages on the fire house/township offices construction. It will be a nice building when we are done – not glamorous, no Taj Mahal, but spacious and functional to replace our current cramped station and tiny administrative building.
Our meeting went long, from 6:30 to 10:00, but we covered a lot of ground. Lots of citizen input, lots of questions answered. A good meeting.
On the national political front, I am beginning to hear from the occasional Democratic friend that they can’t believe it, but it looks like they are going to have to vote Republican this year. Anyone else hearing that? There seems to be a subtle dynamic changing. People are paying attention and aren’t liking what they are seeing on the left.
The more I read, the more I see, the more interesting this election year becomes.
What happens if Obama’s numbers keep dropping between now and the Democratic convention. Will they stick with him, or will Hillary try for a coup? I am seeing an awful lot of PUMA blogs showing up, and wonder if these people really are as committed to promoting Hillary as they say.
In the midst of everything, John McCain can’t get much coverage no matter what he does. And of course none of it is going to be positive. The MSM are ridiculously biased.
Yes, it becomes more and more interesting.
And if you haven’t seen this year’s jibjab sendup yet, you really ought to.
