Renegayed - on South Grand - June 27

Our ward organization's participation in the 3rd annual Keep Pride in Tower Grove (this year, renamed "Renegayed") was a great success.  We spoke with dozens of neighbors about democratic causes and issues, registered people to vote, and had a great time hanging out on South Grand.  Our straw poll was a big success (thanks Beth and Tim!) drawing in over 130 voters.  While not scientific or representative of the whole electorate, the results were nonetheless interesting, with some special write-in candidates.  The results:

      Sen. Bernie Sanders      67%
      Sec. Hillary Clinton      28%
      Gov. Martin O'Malley     2%

Write-in candidates (1 vote each; <1% each):

      Sen. Jim Webb
      Tod Martin

That last one is a real doozy - thanks to my one fan for the vote of confidence.  I couldn't be any worse than GWB!  President Beyonce and First Gentleman Jay Z.  Now, that would be worth seeing.  Photos by Megan-Ellyia Green and David Gray.
