Very, very glad to see this. I had my doubts for awhile.

Although not official yet (they still have the provisional and a few early voting ballots to count, though those could only be a few hundred at most) It is good to see people in this city still have some common sense and could see through that little worm called Jeremy aspen. I honestly expected the recall to succeed. Sadly I expect someone will try to recall suttle again.

According to WOWT, there are not enough remaining ballots to swing the election. For all intents and purposes, this one is over.

It's not a win or lose on either side, it still shows half of the people in Omaha dislike him to the point of recall. I seriously hope that he sees he's doing a horrible job and at makes some major changes in his office policies.

To be honest I didn't know how I was going to vote till I got to the polling place. I kept going back and forth about it as I'm sure many did, feeling that although he's a bad mayor he technically hasn't done anything illegal to warrent a recall.

What would you like to see him change? Supporters of the recall keep saying he's "out of touch with the people" but the only examples they can give are his efforts to balance the city budget.

51.1% of omaha would disagree with that statement. So more than half of the city feels he is doing a good enough job to stay.

Since only 37,000 people voted to recall the mayor and there are about 440,00 people in Omaha, about 9% of Omaha wanted him gone. Get out of here with that 50% b.s.

Just because Suttle got 51.1% of the vote does not even mean that 51.1% of those who voted think he is a good mayor - I'm tired of hearing this flawed argument. There was a large percentage who didn't think he had done anything worth recalling him for. There were also a lot of folks who didn't like the people running the recall effort. His approval rating, as seen in the local paper not too long ago, was a much more accurate portrayal of the citizens' thoughts on Suttle's performance.
