I wanted to send a big thank you to everyone who voted for me, and a big thanks to all the candidates, and all the voters, for participating in this School Board election. There are many schools, groups, communities, and residents in our district, and I was elected to represent every one of you.
There are many people to thank for helping me in my effort. First, my wife who put up with me being gone so much over the past two and a half months, and my children who were roped into literature distribution and who had to deal with all of their friends asking questions about me.
I would like to thank my friend Patrick Stuart for his strategy insights and his video skills, tech skills, and steady hand, without whom I would have made many more mistakes than I did.
I would like to thank my friends who knocked on doors, distributed literature, emailed and told their friends about me, put up signs, and who were so instrumental in getting my name out there.
I would like to thank the organizations and elected officials who publicly supported me. And I would like to thank those who donated to my campaign, because signs, literature and facebook ads do not grow on trees.
The election was the easy part. Now we have plenty of work to do. I look forward to working with the current board members, my newly elected colleagues, and with the Administration and Teachers. Most importantly, I look forward to working with and hearing from you, the residents of our District. As I have said many times, I will listen.
Again, thank you for your support.
