The nation and the world gained a winner in the election of Barack Obama
. Congratulations to the president-elect and all those who successfully campaigned for change. There is much to be done to repair the damage of the past eight years and Obama will need continued support and encouragement as he re-establishes the honor and respect lost by the United States, not to mention economic stability and hope for the future.
Locally, voters have also made clear their wish for change and better government.
Congratulations to all.--Bernice Paglia
