While Doug Nava awaited election results among family, the other two District 1 City Council candidates, Russell Simon (Marble Tap Room) and incumbent Chris Calvert, election-partied the old-fashioned way.
We followed Calvert to Cowgirl for ribs and booze and, yes, the District 1 results.
Questions for the re-elected: In our endorsements we say you could use a "little less patience and a little more gumption." What do you think of that?
Chris Calvert: "I think it's easy to say when someone hasn't done that job. You learn that you have to get five votes; you can't just snap your fingers." He adds that he felt the Reporter "put some thought into its endorsements as opposed to some others I saw." He would not name those publications.
First thing you're gonna do?
Have you thought of a second thing yet?
Advice for Doug Nava and Simon Russell:
CC: "Maybe get a little more experience under their belts."
CC: "Yeah. Relieved I think is the word."
