Thank you all for your encouragement, support, and hard work these past few months. We were a true grass-roots effort, dependent on volunteers, and raised less than a tenth of what the insider's campaign received from special interests, and yet we still took more than 25 percent of the vote. That is pretty amazing, folks, and you deserve the credit.
We should all be proud of what we did with so few resources in comparison, and especially in getting out the message of the campaign that our neighborhoods and their residents should come first, not developers or donors from outside the district, the city, and even the state.
Maria and I were honored to have met people in the community and our campaign volunteers - you have proven that you really do put "Neighborhoods First."
