Congratulations Lapo for a job well done!
Unfortunately, Lapo Pistelli lost the primaries for the center-left party in Florence last night. The winner, Matteo Renzi, won the election with 40.52% of the vote. Lapo came in second place with 26.91% of the vote. Lapo ran an amazing race in my opinion. He really does care about the livelihood of Florence and he would have made a great mayor. However, all things must come to an end. So what is the next step? I actually have no idea. But, the great thing about life is that whenever we move forward, better things happen. But anyway, congratulations to everyone at INPUT for their hard work during the election campaign. Also, thanks for letting me watch how the campaign unfolded. Not many Americans get to see the inside of a political campaign in another country. I am very grateful for the opportunity. I will certainly keep all of you posted on what I will be doing next. It will certainly be interesting.
