I want to thank all of you who have helped and supported me through this campaign. I knew from the beginning that running against a 40 year incumbent would be far from easy. Though we did not get the results we were working for, all is not lost. I was able to do something I love to do, that is share my passion and vision for our community with our community. I was able to let residents know there are people who care and are willing to step up to make sure their voices are heard. I am also proud to say our campaign has inspired some who have never voted and have never understood the importance of local government to vote for the first time. That alone was worth the effort and work involved in running for office. I have gained many new relationships from this experience. Some of my friends who have never previously met were introduced for the first time, causing new friendships to form. So again I want to thank you. This truly has been a fruitful experience. If given the opportunity, I look forward to running again in 2018.
