It takes a lot to make me happy these days. But I am gleeful about the results in the 2 major contested municipal races.  Bob Oakes defeated Renee Cahoon by a meager margin 54% to 46% with rounding.  More gratifying however was Hal Denny's stunning defeat of incumbent Mayor Don Smith.   The margin was a whopping 70% to 30%   It was so one sided that it got a write in candidate elected over Brian Madonald, a fairly popular incumbent who was tied too closely to Smith.
Here are the final totals - unofficial until certified next week but unlikely to change.

More later but it is a good night for good government on the Outer Bank.
