The team of Sottile Noble won big last night and I'm happy to see that voters rejected the ideas and beliefs that were offered by his opponent and instead recognized the leadership that Sottile has provided the city the last six years. If the last six where any indication of what's to come than we're in pretty good shape. I congratulate Sottile and the strong veto proof council that we now have. The aldermadic winners on Tuesday were Ringwood, Landi, Whitlock, DiBella, Polocco, Reynolds, Senor and Madsen.
Bob Gillon who was unsuccessful in his bid for sixth ward alderman is a good guy and I congratulate his efforts. Gillon worked hard and pounded the pavement for months and would of made a fine Alderman. The sixth ward has lost out on a real opportunity.
ULSTER -- Congratulations to Nick Woerner and Brian Cahill who both did a great job in their reelection bids. Woerner, while Ulster is lucky to have him, should not be held down in that position, the people would be well served if he leaped on to bigger and better things.
