Election crew sends thanks to voters

   I would like to take this opportunity to thank the election crew that worked with me at Stillwater School last Tuesday: They are Larry Lydon, Della Payne, Kathryn Johnson, Jeff Spencer, Theresa Zylestra, and my wife Calla who was a sub. Election crews work about 16 hours on election day; it is quite a hectic day.
  
   We had a record turnout for our location; about 900 voters came in (we don't have exact numbers because a few were not registered); one told me he had driven over from Ellensburg to cast a ballot! Thanks also for citizens' patience, especially those who had glitches in their registration or ballots..it was a pleasure to serve you!
