I wrote something about this story, but on the advice of my advisers, I'm not posting it. I was much too snarky in the post and don't want to sound like a sore loser, which I'm not.
OK, maybe just a snippet:
As I said many, many times during the campaign, I wish the focus was on Oakland Mills or at least matters directly impacted by the Columbia Association.
Barbara L. Russell, an Oakland Mills incumbent who defeated Ian Kennedy to earn an eighth term on the board, said downtown development was a major campaign issue in many races.
"It's clear that those of us that supported a reasonable amount of development, not the development that the developers and the county have supported in the past, are the candidates that won."
She said in the next session, she plans to focus on housing issues, including affordability, in Columbia and throughout the county.
