E-mails from people who say they were present indicate that the race was very close and, because of the 'weighted-vote' system, decided by only a few votes.
Here's an excerpt from three e-mails. We can't vouch for their accuracy but find them interesting. The names have been withheld to protect the innocent.
According to one e-mail, Mr. DiFiglio did not go to the meeting and did not send a proxy. We have to wonder if this had anything to do with LaPosta's candidacy for City Chair. There were apparently some Troy votes that went to Wade, to the opposition's surprise.
That's a wrap. Congratulations to Mr. Wade. As Mahoney will probably tell you, running the Titanic isn't an easy job, but it sure is a thankless one.
