Losing an election has to hurt someone, especially when they think they've got it won. Part of me says I can't imagine what it would be like, but then part of me says it may be worse if you are cheering for a campaign and become emotionally involved.
I got mostly involved in the two Public Service Commission races after I realized what they were doing to us. In the primary, I supported Brent Woodall and Robin Litaker When Robin didn't make it to the runoff, I threw my support behind Robert McCollum because that's how passionately this issue touched me.
Though we lost this battle we did not lose the war. They knock us down but we will rise up and, then again and every time we get knocked down will come back at them again and again and we will not stop.
We may not have taking down the establishment, but we rocked the vote. Commissioner Cavanaugh we're coming after you next.
To the ratepayers, Brent, Robin, and Robert, I just wanted to say I'm sorry. I have racked my brain trying to figure out if there was anything else I could have come up with and I just can't think of anything. I did everything I could. I threw everything I had at them. I'm sorry it just wasn't enough. All three of you would have made great commissioners.
