Last week’s primary results are a clear repudiation by the IV/CB community of the divisive, aggressive, and borderline libelous campaigns of Aaron Katz and Frank Wright against the IVGID Board and Staff.
Katz and Wright each received less than 5 percent of the votes cast, placing seventh and eighth out of the ten candidates and failing to qualify for the November ballot. The only primary candidates that placed lower were two who put up no signs and were largely unknown by name to the community.
Perhaps now Katz and Wright will understand that the community they purportedly represent does not share their views and, while not everyone agrees on every issue, feels well-served by IVGID.
Incumbent Bea Epstein, a long-time trustee, was handily placed on the November slate, along with five other candidates whose views are moderate, rational and in line with the mainstream views in our community.
Congratulations to the Incline electorate on maintaining intelligence and rationality in the face of an assault on both.
