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!

" 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.

$4000 for a party????

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.

And finally,....save your energy for the final sprint at the end.

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.
