    This is a direct measurement of the support for Yarbrough and it will correlate to the final vote count. It appears he will win easily with about 52- 55 % of the vote. I said this after his last report. There is a reason for this. He is a known home grown leader with a sincere desire to get his home, our home, out of a rut. The majority of the Island can't be wrong. I guarantee the county wishes he was still there!

    Gotta admit that's impressive for one month of small town politicking.
    Four times more than the monthly salary of an economic developement coordinator.

    1st tier of winning a campaign
    Running a positive campaign by enhancing your skills and not going negative on your opponents.

    2nd tier of winning a campaign
    Raising the most money

    3rd tier of winning a campaign
    Staying in line on advertisement and other expenses. Not using your own money and getting in personal debt/ using your own savings is a plus too. In fact some people like to run their opponents into debt.

    I think Yarbrough has checked off all those boxes.

    Never end a campaign with too much left over,...youd be really bummed if you lost when that one last ad or mailing would have garnered the final five votes you need.

    " The majority of the Island can't be wrong." -- The majority of this Island is often wrong. Look around.

    "I guarantee the county wishes he was still there!" -- And I agree with them 100%. Better for both the County and the City.
