The results of Olympia's 2017 elections are nearly final, with the #RenataForCouncil campaign sitting at 54%-46%. The election will be certified by County Auditor Mary Hall on November 28.

I want to thank Jeannine Roe, the incumbent in position 6, for her eight years of service on Olympia City Council. Serving on council is going to be harder than I (and most people) can imagine -- truly, no one who hasn't done it can understand what it's like. Thank you, Jeannine.

Olympia, I look forward to serving as your council member beginning in January 2018. Thank you for your kind support, your wise ideas and your hard questions. No matter who you voted for, I hope to earn your trust in the coming years doing the people's work, so we can grow together in the community we all love. <3

Thank you, Renata, for having the courage to serve us. Jeannine did good by not running a negative campaign, and of course she seems like a very nice lady, but like many wealthy neoliberals, she viewed gentrification as an attractive option for business, without understanding the consequences of inequality, or the fact that the Olympia community is all about the "outcast underclass." I respect you as an agent of change. Congratulations on a well-deserved victory.

Congratulations Renata.πŸ˜€

Thank you from one of those people in the next town over. πŸ˜‰

So the last count at 6:20pm only brought in 250 more Olympia ballots, and there are still thousands to go. Of those ballots, 85% broke for #RenataForCouncil -- bringing us within just 49 votes to flipping the race.

Way to get those ballots in Olympia!!! We broke 40% turnout. <3 Next update is at 8pm tonight.
