Congratulations, Kristine LaLonde
The results are in, according to the City Paper. Kristine LaLonde has won the District 18 Metro Council seat by a vote of 672 to 476, beating Stephenie Dodson. LaLonde was endorsed by MNEA, labor groups, Women in Numbers, and TEP PAC.
I was working the poll at Eakin Elementary this morning and this afternoon through minor episodes of rain and a stream of people that was more parents and children than voters. Kristine's campaign clearly showed they know how to turn out their voters.
Congratulations to Kristine and to the people of District 18. You have elected a thoughtful, energetic Council Member. Everyone at TEP looks forward to working with you.
