Thank you to all who have worked so hard and to the voters in District 48 who have encouraged me. We would never have come this far without you. We have run an honorable campaign, and because of your unselfish work and advice the voters of District 48 have had a choice. I will never forget you.

I hope Mr. Breen will listen to you as I envisioned listening, by phone, by e-mail, by website, by seminars and meetings and by visiting your schools, your churches, and your neighborhood associations. I hope he will respond to your discomfort and your needs and your ideas for the future as I envisioned responding, and that you will find yourself two years from now in a better financial situation, with the same good schools and outstanding teachers, and with the economy of the state thriving.

This has been a truly humbling and wonderful experience. Thank you!
