While I was in the Clerk's Office yesterday - Have I ever mentioned how nice and accommodating the people in there are? - I asked about the write-in votes, as in specifically what names were written in for mayor.
The names were mostly familiar ones (I didn't write them all down) such as Dan McCarthy (who ran in 2007 but didn't make it through the primary), Steve Cole (ditto), Gardiner Bacon (ditto), Dan Sweeney (who pulled out of the 2009 race) and John Moak showed up, I think 4 or 5 times.
Also in there was Frank Kane, the guy who had the bumper stickers and who Larry Giunta a couple of weeks ago was wondering about.
There were only 24 in all.
