JNS Exclusive: Linda Higgins Wins Unanimous Endorsement!
Post, first photo, and video by the Hawthorne Hawkman. Second photo by Megan Goodmundson.
State Senator Linda Higgins, endorsed by this blog, has won the Senate district 58 endorsement by unanimous consent. The tally really was 68.5% to 31.5% after the first ballot. But in a classy move, challenger Raymond Dehn withdrew from contention and made a motion for unanimous consent. That procedure is in the video above. Also shown above, I took the high ground and placed Higgins signs on top of each mound of snow outside the convention at North High.
Although I felt that Linda Higgins has been doing a fine job and no challenger was necessary, I will second her comments and applaud Mr. Dehn for the way he ran his campaign. He consistently contributes to our community and I hope he and others like him continue to be a part of the public discourse.
More videos and commentary to follow, but for now, we celebrate with Linda!
