this is a big let down just because you have tons of friends who vote for you doesn't mean you are the right person for the job. its time this hard to change town of ours opens their minds and do right for this community instead of picking someone that rode on his fathers shirttails and was picked because of having friends that don't know any better

I think this town has spoken. By the margin of victory, I highly doubt this was a popularity contest!

I wonder why the dubs signs never included his first name. Maybe still running on his dad's coat tails..... no that would not be it. Maybe just forgot to add the first name. Yeah I bet that's it

Even in defeat, DOWS needed to get one last jab in about DUBS running on his father's name. Any educated person living in HANOVER knew who would do the better job and the wide margin of victory proves it! CONGRATULATIONS Judge DUBS.

The last thing we need is more lawyers serving on anything. I love it when a big mouth outsider thinks they know better than the people that lived here forever.

I feel many HANOVER voters were "turned off" by DOWS mouth and "self-centered" bragging about his past. If he was so good at all the things he's done in the past why the constant job changing? I met DOWS face-to-face and it took about 30 seconds to realize he had a BIG ego and hearings he would preside over would be all about him and NOT just results.

Now we can rid ourselves of Dows at local meetings that he never came to until he decided to run for office.

Bye bye Mike...sorry you won't get the pension you so desperately wanted. Now you and your ego will have plenty of time to tell yourself how great you are (even though the voters felt otherwise).

It still seems to me that we may have had two good men running (though it was hard to appreciate Mr. Dows' "Best Man - Better Judge" on his placards; what did THAT mean?), but am pleased - and grateful - that Judge Dubs will remain in his job; and being relatively new to the area, I did NOT vote for Dubs because of his father, but because of what I heard from people who work with him - they appreciate his intelligence, his objectivity, and thoughtfulness. Judge Dubs is to be congratulated, but so are we.

Yes! I like Dubs! Dow was a self centered bad loser. People who had Dow's signs in their yards were very bright either. Dow would of not been able to handel the job, he just wanted the title, and then grew bored with it.

"Best Man" - really whos getting married and when is the toast?

"Better Judge" - the voters didn't seem to think so.
