From the Polls: Palisadians React to the Ballot

Patch was at the polls to get residents' comments after they voted.

Palisadians had things to say as they exited the polls Tuesday and Patch was there to capture those thoughts. Patch posted these to its live coverage blog hosted by Cover It Live. Read the entire transcript, which includes several of Patch editors' reactions.

6:08 p.m. Palisades resident Melinda Rickers believes it is a shame that libraries have to compete for the same funding as police and fire. Libraries are important, she said. Rickets opted out of posing in a picture with me.

6:13 p.m. Palisadian Lewis Jamison believes that the DWP appointing some guy to supervise is a waste of money. The city can do fine with what it has. Jamison also did not want a photo.

6:28 p.m. David Selig believes it is time for people to tighten their belts. Rather than voting yes on some ballot measure to increase spending, we should be cutting back. "We're in crisis mode," he said. "I have to pay premiums," he said in reference to pension reform. FYI, I'm typing on an iPhone and have fat thumbs.

6:32 p.m. Sam and Norman say "vote no, no, no, no, no...no" on everything.

6:39 p.m. Julie Solheim-Roe voted across the board using suggestions from Laprogressives.org. She wants to keep everything funded.
