I got crushed!
Congratulations to Jay Kim, the winner.
All election results are below.
Turnout was higher than the last contested election, but with still close to 6000 abstains, this is definitely not the type of election one can win by simply blogging and sending out some emails, as I did. It takes pressing the flesh, which my opponent did, at least early on before the pandemic really got going.
Oh well. It’s nice to know Jay had to earn it this time, campaigning instead of going in unopposed, like the vast majority of his 51 colleagues on the BOG typically do. In the future, maybe he’ll simply professionally and politely respond to emails if myself or another constituent sends him one, and possibly avoid a challenge. Live and learn, as they say.
In any event, thank you to Dan Lewis from PoliticalStrategies.com and Craig Agranoff from PoliticalConsulting.com for the solids on the campaign emails, and to all of you that read here and voted. I am truly touched.
Lastly, I hereby announce my candidacy for BOG in 2021. Thank you in advance for your continued support. Together we can reform the Florida Bar!
