I want to give a huge thank you to all my family, friends, and supporters for everything they did in this campaign. We didn’t get the result we had hoped for, but I’m very proud of the campaign we ran. We put a lot of effort and energy into it, canvassed every walkable precinct in the City, and maintained a fully positive message. Ultimately, maybe the most important lesson I want to teach Ellie is to set goals that help others, work hard to achieve them, and accept it if they just don’t come to pass. You can never achieve anything if you don’t try, and I want her to be willing to take hard challenges even if they can be daunting.
It was truly a pleasure meeting so many people throughout the City on this journey and learning about their perspectives. I’m comforted in knowing that Lakewood’s Schools will be in excellent shape, with strong and capable leadership from Mike Callahan, Emma Petrie-Barcelona, and Linda Beebe.
I remain committed to helping our schools and our community in whatever way I can. Thanks again so much for your support!
