OK. Let’s be gracious about this. Congratulations to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, which (just barely) edged out New Rochelle to make it to the final four of the Strongest Town competition. It was a real nail-biter: Portsmouth received 50.4% to New Rochelle’s 49.6%. That’s Florida-style close.
Although disappointed we fell short, I am very proud that New Rochelle was in the competition in the first place and grateful to everyone who cast a vote on our behalf. Just wait ’til next year!
