    After careful review of the results and the IP addresses of which the votes came in, we have determined that the results were likely manipulated and Roanoke should be declared the winner.

    If Effingham wants to play dirty, we will vote against them over and over again in the next round!!!!!!!

  • Hadlyn - 2 years ago

    This is War! If ELGL doesn't overturn the results, We will lead a charge to vote against Eff in the next round!!!!

  • Charlie - 2 years ago

    Do th right thing ELGL! Overturn these results! Roanoke won fair and square!

  • Tony - 2 years ago

    Glad to see the results being reviewed! With an hour to go, Roanoke had a huge lead. The only way they could have lost is if someone had voted over and over and over again. I wonder if all those votes caked from hundreds of citizens, or a select few. Hmmmm...

    These results have been challenged after questionable tactics late on Friday night.

    EFFINGHAM CITY HALL!! What an amazing feature to this thriving City! It compliments the downtown district and functions as the progressive hub of local government. The history on the walls within and the outdoors' sculptures of the playful children and flame of hope show the passion of the people, past and present.

    Been working here for 24 years, have seen a lot of improvements over the years. Roanoke City Hall is a beautiful old building meshed with a beautiful new building many many years ago. However, its not just a building that makes City Hall beautiful, its the all the folks who bring the services to the community we serve.

  • Karen - 2 years ago

    I enjoy the fact that people are able to walk through the halls and recall how the offices used to be used.
    Its great to see the old and the new blending an older structure with a newer one. Last year the outdoor steps to the older building were renovated and that entrance reopened for public access.
