---- — Dog obedience lesson
Philene Lyons came out to vote in Derry last week and brought along her best friend, Lucky, to help support their favorite candidate.
Lucky, a 3-year-old Bansenji, sported a green felt coat with the words “Coyle” embroidered on it. She was supporting Kevin Coyle, a Derry candidate for county commissioner.
“Obey the dog!” Lyons called out as people entered the polling place.
The tactic must have worked; Coyle ended up winning in Derry. he was the top GOP vote-getter in the race and advances to the November ballot.
