Talk about being gracious in victory.
On Channel 2 after being declared the winner, re-elected Mayor Luke Ravenstahl touted his "positive campaign" and said (as transcribed by me):
"Patrick [Dowd] was very offensive to me. I hope he would offer an apology. We asked for it many times."
Ravenstahl then said that he looks forward to working with Councilman Dowd, but cautioned that "[Dowd] has some explaining to do."
Then on Channel 4 he said it again, talking about how his mother told him to not say anything if he had nothing nice to say.
"So that's what I did. Patrick crossed the line and I asked for an apology. He didn't offer it; hopefully in the very near future he will."
You deserve nothing. No apology. Nothing. Dowd pointed out truths about you and your administration. I can only hope that the new City Council makes your professional life difficult at every turn over the next four years.
Nothing is over. Nothing.
