Now that it’s all over I might as well tell you how I voted. There were so many names on the ballot it’s hard to remember them all. Here they are, in no particular order:
In Health and Wellness I voted for Accupuncture and Integrative Medicine, in Eye Care I voted for Physicians Eye Care. And why wasn’t my dentist a nominee? Grr.
Plumbing? Earhardt. Heating and Air Conditioning? Environmental Systems.
Best place to have an event: The Other Barn, Oakland Mills
Caterer: Althea’s Almost Famous
Farmer’s Market: Oakland Mills, of course
Garden Center/Store: Freetown Farm
Community Non-profit: Columbia Community Care
Childcare: Bet Yeladim Preschool
Boutique: Sweet Elizabeth Jane
Art Gallery: Horse Spirit Arts Gallery
School Principal: Rick Robb, Patuxent Valley Middle School
Elected official Calvin Ball, County Executive
Pastor/Congregational Leader: Paige Getty (Let’s get ASLC’s Lura Groen on this list next year!)
Well, why not?
I didn’t vote in all the categories. You don’t have to, you know. Just like I didn’t vote for any Judges of the Orphans Court. But that’s another story altogether.
You weren’t expecting this? Fair enough.
I wasn’t expecting the candidate I supported for Governor to be knocked out of the race early on last night, either.
Gosh, I hate politics.
