The unofficial vote count is in and we unfortunately have some bad news. The count came in around 2,500 total votes. That turnout is just shy of our largest turnout ever for a national election and more than double our previous village election. The unofficial results are:
Van Alstyne 1,314
We can’t thank you all enough for the incredible amount of support that we’ve had these last few months. We are honored to call you neighbors and friends.
We also would like to extend a special thank you to our Orthodox neighbors that turned out tonight. If this was truly an orthodox vs non-orthodox vote, as our opponents would have you believe, this margin would have been much wider. Thank you for seeing through their hateful words. It is a beautiful thing to know that many of us in this village truly want the same thing and we saw that in your support for us tonight. Do not give up the fight for this village
