Sullivan Does not Do It As Well

The first major of Cambridge, William Russell became a governor of Mass. Richard, Leonard and Sheila have been majors.
Marjorie Decker had to a run a write-in "sticker" campaign for city council due to a late filing. She succeeded in being elected - starting with 1,285 #1 votes in the first round, she made the quota of 1,595 votes in the 13th round. We use a proportional system to elect our nine councillors (based on voters selecting up to nine choices in order of preference). It's a complex system and avoids runoff elections. It allow all nine candidates to run city wide.
