Thank you again for your encouragement and assistance throughout our campaign these last four and half months. Last night did not produce the result we anticipated. While I am disappointed, it is important for you to know that I have no regrets nor second-guesses. I am proud of our campaign. I look forward to future opportunities to serve our community. You made this a remarkable experience for me from start to finish. Thank you. I am confident I will seek your support again soon and I know you will provide it.
Being defeated is only a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent. - Adapted from Marilyn vos Savant
