Those are going to be some long meetings. The best to Mr. O'Bryan moving forward--you're probably the luckiest one.

Thanks for the kind comments from both sides. I did my best to serve the community and with the help of other board members, we accomplished a great deal. I am sure Karin will receive a warm welcome from the other board members. She ran a strong campaign and remaining active in her children's education will help her become a better board member. I am sure she will do just fine. My advice is for her to build solid relationships with as many board members as possible. If you lose a vote, move on to the next problem.
