The special election is done and Sharon Bulova has narrowly defeated Pat Herrity.
In her first act as Chairman elect, Ms. Bulova should send a bouquet of roses to Brian Moran.
Why? Because had he not resigned, there would not have been a special election in Alexandria, where the GOP almost grabbed a seat from the overconfident Dems.
I suspect that narrow victory served as a wake-up call for this campaign, sort of the canary in the coal mine that this race was losable.
The roses, of course, will be canary yellow.
Good Luck to Chairman Bulova. It will be interesting to see how she is able to govern between now and the next BOS election without saying “no”.
