Thank you, to one and all!
I am incredibly disappointed by the results, but it was NOT for lack of work, heart and support. We may have lost, but we were not beaten.
The numbers don’t tell the whole story.
- We worked for bipartisanship and we got individuals who said “You’re the first Republican I’ve voted for” and “I voted for the person, not the party.”
- We worked for civility and we got individuals who said “I may not agree with you, but I learned something from you.”
- We worked for community and we got Democrats, Independents, unenrolled and Republicans standing side by side holding signs, sharing a cup of hot cider.
I know we got people’s attention. I thank my supporters for that. And I thank the people of Newton for opening your doors and sharing your concerns.
You are worth working for and you are worth fighting for.
Our campaign gave voters a choice. I am proud to have been an independent voice, to have been the cause for people to stop, think and make a conscious decision.
I will continue to fight for choice. There would be no freedom if there was no choice. There would be no democracy if there was no voice.
Until next time. Your choice. Your voice. Your freedom.
