No squeaker for Squeaky

Our pastor used his most recent Sunday bulletin column to announce the results in the retention election he called a few weeks ago.
There were about 400 replies received, and there were 2 negatives.
He remains in office with 99.5% of the vote. With over 7,000 parish members, I think we can call turnout light.

In his post-election remarks, he said
I am happy that we reaffirmed our “partnership” to work together in the next few years. Thank you so much. I think they will be exciting years.
As do I, if he means the excitement of deleveraging. Our parish is still paying the mortgage on a building project from around the turn-of-the-millenium.

P.S. "Squeaky" is a nickname that, he told us early on, he received at a prior parish for what some saw as a frugal approach to finances.
