    I’m hoping for three wins in the races that I thought were most important: governor, senate and school super but two out of three would be fine with me. On the way to the Sycamore polling place, I was impressed with a house that bucked the typical Decatur yard sign herd. It takes a certain kind of courage to post signs that imply, “This House Is Not Part Of The Decatur Plantation”. This election may not show it but I think Decatur is changing. More homeowners will challenge the idea that government knows best. But until a Tea Party conservative is elected to the commission, I’ll be happy with two out of three at the state/senate level.
