I was invited to the meeting to help count votes. I worked with Abby Hendrix on counting votes in the Governor race. No candidate won that endorsement (no one got enough votes to get 50% of the club support…with seven candidates…that is no big surprise). I will say that the candidates that received the most votes on the three ballots were: Krish Vignarajah, Rich Madaleno and Kevin Kamenetz….with Krish coming in first on all ballots…just not getting enough votes for the club endorsement.
