I think the results show an anti-incumbent wave is still moving among voters. I also think the desire of voters to elect pro-growth candidates who will work to bring jobs to the county was evident. And I think that attacking Mr. Anderson for his career choices and personal business was a mistake. The influence of money was evident as always but the days of seeing who has raised what may not be as important as in the past. Direct contributions favored Mr. Imfeld but the Our generation spending far eclipsed anything Mr. Imfeld had. The negative mailers late that indicated Ms. Meadows had been found guilty of misuse of her position hurt as well. One stark difference between the 3 commission races was that Mr. Chapman AND his supporters never went negative against either opponent while both Ms. Meadows and Mr. Imfeld's supporters were very negative against Mr. Anderson and Ms. Nipper. People tend to sympathize with the attacked and absolutely do not like what they view as dirty politics. I think the size of Ms. Skipper's win also points to this phenomenon.
