To The Daily Sun,
The recent Special Election race to fill the remaining nine months of Ray Burton's term for Executive Council (District 1) was a wonderful life experience for me.
I knew that running in this vast district (the northern two-thirds of the state) would be extremely demanding, but I was both overwhelmed and energized by the hundreds of supporters who volunteered for my campaign in so many ways: making financial contributions, placing (and holding) signs, writing letters to newspapers, making phone calls on my behalf, and hosting numerous events all over the state. For this I say thank you. It is hard to express the gratitude I feel.
I would like to wish Joe Kenney the very best as he completes the term of my good friend, Ray Burton.
Thank you again to all of my loyal supporters, and to everyone who voted for me.
Michael J. Cryans
