Dieter Dudy arrives at his election-night gathering (Daily News photo)
I got some things right in my election predictions, though that’s not saying much.
I predicted that Peter Milobar would win, but then, so did everyone else. I said he would be chastened and boy, was he chastened. Embarrassingly so. If not for a split vote, Dieter Dudy would be our new mayor.
I thought Tina “It’s Brilliant!” Lange would be in trouble but she wasn’t.
I said two incumbents would be defeated, but only one went down.
I figured Nelly Dever, based on her mediocre performance at forums, and on her lack of much of a platform, would run ninth or 10th, but she grabbed the eighth and final spot for council.
I was surprised how strongly Marg Spina polled.
I’m disappointed for my two coffee buddies, John DeCicco and Peter Sharp, though they both knew they were in for a fight.
