The election is over and the the locals have spoken. Young Calvin Byrd (25) wins a seat on city council. He brings with him a positive attitude and optimism. James Grogan (67) was also elected. Together they will bring a good mix of youth and experience. Also 948 votes were cast on the ELOST proposition that passed with over 79% percent of the vote to raise over 30 million dollars over the next five years to build new schools and other under takings. I was a little shocked that in a difficult economy we citizens voted to impose higher taxes on our community. However Dawsonville has decided so let it be.
