“All politics is local” was true on Friday afternoon as a group of us were out supporting 5th Barnstable District state representative candidate Jim Dever in the face of an all-consuming national news day.

I want to believe that the numerous horn beeps, returned waves, and thumbs up were votes for Jim but realized that many of them were simply support and encouragement for the democratic process we were engaged in. And for that I’m thankful and hopeful that it means that people will get out and vote.
