Onward Together

Nora Radest

Dear Summit Neighbors,

Many thanks for all your help over the past six months.  I am deeply honored to have been elected the next Mayor of Summit, and I will do my utmost to fulfill the trust that you have shown in me, both with your vote and with the time and resources you have so generously devoted to my campaign.  I take this trust very seriously.  You can be sure that I will continue to work as hard as I can on behalf of ALL of the residents of Summit.

I began this campaign by telling you that I believe that Summit’s greatest asset is its people, having witnessed first-hand in my volunteer work the energy and creativity many of us expend in an effort to leave this town even better than we found it.  Well, the victory that we achieved together this week is a powerful affirmation of that belief.  I could not have done it without your help, and the help of many, many other people, and I am profoundly grateful.

This outcome confirms my belief that good government is inclusive, responsive, and pragmatic.  Together, we ran a campaign that demonstrated those characteristics, and together, we won.  I look forward to continuing the dialogue that we have begun, and I sincerely hope that you will continue to share your ideas with me throughout my term in office.  Just as with this campaign, we need all of us together to make Summit the best that it can be.  

Again, many, many thanks.

See you around town,

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
