Not everyone loves Alan or his politics, but I think he's a genuinely good guy who always did what he thought was best. I also feel strongly that four more years of Ben Nichols would have been bad for the City, and four years of Dan Hoffman would have been disastrous.
But whatever. :-) Alan's done, and I bet he's going to have lots of free time in the coming weeks! He reminded me that it's his turn to buy dinner (I bought at Kayuga last month).
