At the polls in Maple Heights
Yesterday, was lots of fun. It started early with Ruth and I getting out the door around 5:30am. We set up two polling locations before settling in at the Maple Heights High School. At that point in time, it was only 70 degrees!
The morning was very slow with only 16 voters coming to our location during the first two hours! We wondered whether the turnout was going to be drastically low. Then the election officials measured the boundaries and made us move. Then the sun came out and made us move again. Nevertheless, we had a good time hanging out with the other workers at the polls and goofing around. The Neomia Mitchell supporters were especially enjoyable.
If you came out to the polls, you may have noticed our logo. The rising star maple leaf was on everything: our signs, literature, balloons and pens. The rising star is a symbol of hope and opportunity. Maple Heights still has potential. With the right leadership, that potential can be realized.
