|Losing candidates hope Boone wins|

While the election didn’t go his way, mayoral candidate Tim Wilson says a lot of good came out of this year’s race
"I think this got attention in Boone, as to the
issues, and it will get people to watch it more, and maybe they'll go
to more of the meetings. We need more involvement from citizens, and
this got more involvement," Wilson says.
The record numbers arriving at the polls showed an interest, he says. If anyone can handle defeat gracefully, it’s Wilson.
"I congratulate Mayor Clawson for her victory and I hope that she does well," he said after the announcement last night.
You’ll still seem him at the occasional meeting, he says. Citizens for Change endorsed candidate Ethan Dodson says his service isn’t over either.
"A lot of my goal will be to stay active, not necessarily in Boone, but also on campus and to keep students informed of what's going on," he says.
Dodson says the election proved you can make a difference."Whether anyone realizes it now, every election makes every citizen a citizen for change."
