Mark Brown with the election numbers tallied up!
Mark Brown and Edmund Malkoon were pretty even in the south with Brown winning those two precincts by just 2 votes…In the north Brown lost by 21 votes in Bel Air and Terra Mar…Mark Brown won big time in the north condos 166 to Malkoon’s 54 …Mark Brown also won big in the absentee votes with 321 votes to Malkoon’s 165…Mark Brown wins with 58.49% of the vote… I was hoping for a bigger percentage win and feel it would have happened if Edmund Malkoon had not played the reprehensible and statute violating party affiliation card in this nonpartisan race ….I am counting on a complaint being filed still to hold him responsible for his actions… We now know there is no need for a recount to deal with in this 2012 LBTS election …whew!…But, the percentage means this was no mandate win either and that tells Mark Brown, our new Commissioner sitting on the dais in Seat 3 that he will need to make sure he keeps true to his word and governs under the “5 reasons” he gave for voting for him as he faces his first 4 year term and the many important issues he will now face with the pending downtown redevelopment…sewers …taxes…and legislation that will be imposed on our municipality by the County and the State!
For this writer I feel I have now completed my personal mission to rectify the last of the mistakes I made in the 2008 LBTS election by co-managing Commissioner Clottey into the seat Mark Brown will now take over and not his opponent …I believe Mark will be fair and forthright in his decision making as well as being accessible to those who voted for him and those who did not… My hope is for a long hiatus as I become just another member of the viewing audience once more counting on this Commission to do right by the taxpayers, residents, businesses and tourists because for the first time in a very long time they are all beholden to no one person and no one group!…
Congratulations Mark and Congratulations LBTS ….
