New optimism in McNamara mayoral campaign

Yesterday, for the first time, the vote counting in the Sam Abed-Paul McNamara election for mayor of Escondido  thrust McNamara into the lead. At 5 p.m. the Registrar of Voters updated their count to show McNamara with 16,064 (50.37%) to Abed’s 15,827 (49.63%.)
Paul McNamara told the Times-Advocate this morning: “We were told there are 1800 provisionals left to count in this race and they were going to start today. I understand they take longer to count. So, I don’t know if they will finish today. But if the count continues to break in our favor as it has, I agree it’s time for some optimism.”
Update Thursday 7:36pm: McNamara 17,032 / Abed 16,607

    I hope Mr McNamara prevails… hoping he won’t turn his back on our community like Abed did

      I have no idea what you are talking about the Mayor turning his back on our community, I have never felt that the Mayor is not involved and active in the community. While sometimes I think his personality can be a little abrasive, he has always answered all my emails and put me in touch with people in the city that can help me. After years of neglect and decay, Escondido is finally turning around and improving under Mayor Abed and the Republicans, I would sure hate to see this improvement stoping if we get a Democratic majority. I just wish all the Escondido public schools wen’t so bad, then we would really have a great city, but that is not the Mayors fault

      What are you talking about? Abed did good job. What’s wrong with him? A party or what?
