To come in 11th in an 11 man field in a primary when the top 10 advance:

City Council President Stephan Hay garnered the most votes in Tuesday’s preliminary election while Pacific Street resident and perennial candidate Ronald Dionne lost the chance for his name to appear on November’s ballot, according to unofficial results announced Tuesday night.

How bad was it? This bad:

Only 173 residents cast a vote for Dionne, less than 3 percent of the total vote.

Overall, 6,093 residents voted on Tuesday, according to unofficial election records.

And the title of the story?

Dionne loses preliminary

That’s gotta smart.

Hey that was a fine use of the $25,000 that election cost, it’s not like we need the money to get streetlights on or something.

Then again there are some who think streetlights are no big deal. After who ever heard of a city paying for streetlights? If we conservatives don’t like it we should pay for it ourselves!
