Well Friends, it looks like fortune wasn’t on my side tonight.
No matter. I can’t claim that it is not a personal disappointment, this loss.
But what I do know, and knew all along, was that there was going to be someone who cared deeply about the library and the future of Brookfield who would not get enough votes.
There are no losers here, the winner is the Village of Brookfield and the current and future residents who will have a strong board to support them and push their vision for growth.
For all of you who voted for me, I thank you for the support. It means a lot. And I have a feeling that for better or worse, you haven’t heard the last from me.
Thank you so much,
J. Edgar Mihelic
