Congratulations Rep. Dan Mayfield

PoliticsThe Big Lake Times is calling the race for Assembly District No. 5 over, and declaring Incumbent Dan Mayfield as the winner of this very close race. All votes have been counted, including absentee and questioned ballots.

Previously, challenger Tew was ahead by just 20 votes, after the final count Rep. Mayfield pulled ahead by just 18 votes. Mayfield now has 695 votes to challenger Tew's 677.

This is an excellent example showing that every vote matters. 24.94% of registered voters in Big Lake voted, a rate nearly twice the next-closest community, and besting the 9% overall turnout.

At least he put on clean clothes for the election. Tew and his gang looked like bums, begging for a vote.

In fact, I heard some votes were bought with a bottle. Not saying where I heard it.

whenever a dispute or question as to "speech," the answer is more speech not less. the lies are exposed and the truth is revealed. It is the market place of ideas that secures liberty, but requires bold and stalwart people with courageous open minds. Where do you stand?

I'm afraid your saying to Big Lake..."if you don't dress up you don't count as a person".
Phonies in every crowd..........Feel sorry for someone with tunnel vision such as yours, you must stub your toe a lot.

My heartfelt THANKS to all who supported me in this campaign. It was a close vote and tough campaigns on both sides. With all of that over, it is now time for us to put the experience behind us so that we can bring our community (our District) back together again.

Thank you Big Lake for showing up "in force" at the voting booth. You have consistently shown how responsible and concerned you are with having a voice in your government. I look forward to representing you for the next three years on the Assembly.
Congratulations Rep. Dan Mayfield
