To The Daily Sun,
I wanted to write and thank the voters of District 1 for exercising their right to vote on Tuesday in the District 1 Executive Council primary. While the results did not turn our as I would have liked, the campaign brought out some important issues and critical discussions on how we can best serve following 32 years from Ray Burton.
I have congratulated former State Sen. Joe Kenney on his victory and will support him in the general election. However, regardless of whom you support, the important thing is that you go to vote on Tuesday, March 11. The Executive Council position is vital to the economic well-being and quality-of-life of our district, and a strong turnout shows you understand its importance.
While I do not know what the future holds, I expect to stay active in my community and beyond, and hope to have the opportunity to serve our state in the future. Finally, I would like to thank my family, friends, and supporters — the Boothby Brigade! — who were with me throughout this campaign. Their support was vital and I will never forget them.
