**On Sunday we flew to Boston and spent about 3 days helping my brother Doug with his campaign for City Councilor at Large. He's been a city councilor for 8 years, and this is a step up~! So, we helped distribute about 1000 flyers, made calls to sign holders, dropped off signs at the polls from 5:30am to 7am on Nov. 8th, picked up coffee and donuts, then drove around to half of the polling places around the city and offered them to sign holders for all candidates' sign holders. We also ran errands and managed to squeeze in dinner (thanks to my sister-in-law for making it for all of us) and see my nephews.
DOUG WINS POSITION AS COUNCILOR-AT-LARGE!
There were 3 seat and 4 candidates for a Councilor at Large position in my brother's race. My brother Doug came in SECOND, cementing him a seat as as Councilor at Large!
