While I might wish the outcome were different, I am grateful for the opportunity and proud of the support I have received from so many people. Having met so many residents and learned more about the things that can help improve their way of life helps drive my desire to continue to contribute to the community. While my run in this race is ending, the future remains bright.
I also want to congratulate David Carson and Carlos Jimenez for making it through the primary. I also want to thank Shad Ansari for running; while we don’t immediately know the impact we have had on the lives of others until much later, we will look back and be thankful that we did it.
