"Souper" Election Results

Last week I served as an election judge for our local Township election. There was only one candidate on the ballot, a Township supervisor, running unopposed, who has held this position for 30+ years. Obviously my neighbors think he is doing a darn good job (and I agree) since no one is stealing the job away from him.

I always enjoy helping at the elections. I think it's in my genes...My dad was a city councilman for many, many years, and my mom has served as an election judge for many years in their community too. As much as I enjoy being a part of this election process, I also look forward to the "perks" - seeing my neighbors, working with the other judges, and the food! Food? Yes, food! You see, each of the judges contributes to our smorgasbord of delicious food offerings, since we election judge over two meal times. 

Besides the election proving we have a great Township Supervisor, the election proves we also have great cooks in our township! Thanks to Eileen for this dairy-delicious Wild Rice soup.
