Thanks to the Paonia voters who elected Ross King, Eric Goold, Amber Kleinman and me to the Paonia Town Council.
It's my first time to hold an elected office (Not counting president of the Glee Club in high school.) I am pleased and grateful.
Here is some information about the Paonia election you may not have known:
1 There are 1,431 people living inside the town limits of Paonia.
2 Of those, 1,131 people are over the age of 18 and eligible to register to vote.
3. Of those, only 710 are actively registered.
4. Of those, only 385 actually voted.
5. Of those, between 249 and 259 cast a vote for the people actually elected to the Paonia Town Council.
6. So about 1/5 of the people decide who represents you.
Old joke: Question —What's the difference between agnosticism and apathy? Answer — I don't know and I don't care. Funny except on election day.
