Thank you Bob Burgess Editor of the Melrose Weekly News!

Kudos to Bob Burgess of the Melrose Weekly News for devoting an entire page of the paper to the City-wide election results. It's interesting and very telling that Dolan does not have the support he thinks he does. 1861 people left the ballot "blank". That's 22.6 percent of voters who actively chose NOT to vote for him. More telling is that 608 voters took the time to "write-in" a candidate instead of voting for him. Monica Medeiros topped the Alderman at large ticket with 5034 votes. As Mayor, Dolan got 5763 votes running unopposed. Not a ringing endorsement Robbie.
