First, let’s look at a little history and go back 4 years. The year was 2012, Mary Cooke took the Supervisors office from Pete McMahon. There was a very controversial race for Supervisor, incumbent Peter McMahon vs. Mary Cooke. Mary Cooke won the November 2011 election vote for Supervisor by 380 votes. What happened after that is what we all need to be interested in. We need to know just what kind of “CHARACTER” these people had. We need to know and remember this, just in case these people ask us to vote for them again.
CHARACTER DEFINED – The Mental and Moral Qualities distinctive to an Individual.
When Peter McMahon lost the election, he did exactly what you would expect. Running a Town is a big responsibility. You need to set your personal feelings aside and do what is right for the residents that elected you. You work with the individual replacing you and make them aware of all of the little things that are in the works, so the Town and it’s residents interests are protected. And the handover of power is done in an educated and efficient way. You wouldn’t want Grant money lost or a contract left uncompleted. You would want the “NEW PERSON” to know everything in the works. After all, the Supervisor serves the people of Grand Island and it’s interests. That is exactly what Peter McMahon did. He helped Mary Cooke learn the Supervisors Job. Pointing out all the ins and outs to the new guy is important.
MY QUESTION TO ALL GRAND ISLAND RESIDENTS.
What do you think Mary Cooke did when she found out she lost the Election?
