American voter is hard to fool

recent election I've always felt that the American voter is usually pretty hard to fool. In the long run, the majority can usually see through subterfuge and hype.
   These views were never proven more true when the votes were finally counted in the Woodinville Council races.
   Marsha Engel and Barbara Solberg overcame a mountain of machine money and won, although not by much. They both were rewarded by conducting an honest, straightforward campaign.
   Now I feel Woodinville will face the future with renewed confidence and all the citizens will be fairly represented.
   The special interest groups will have to prove their respective causes to be in the best interest of all before they will be approved.
   Now we can finally feel that Woodinville is in good hands and the future indeed looks much brighter!
