Candidate offers thanks and congratulations

Date published: 5/13/2014

It was an honor, and a lot of fun, to be one of your candidates and to meet so many of my neighbors in Ward 3. I've learned so much about our city: the opportunities, challenges and aspirations we all live with.

I also want to thank the team of people who helped with the campaign, supported my efforts and voted.

In this most recent election, six strong and devoted candidates ran to represent their ward on City Council in Fredericksburg.

On Tuesday, four of them were elected. I extend my sincerest congratulations to Messrs. Ellis, Withers, Duffy and Frye.

I stand ready to support Tim Duffy's work on the City Council and encourage residents to do the same. Mr. Duffy ran a great campaign, and I do believe that he will promote tourism, economic development opportunities and transportation solutions for our city.

Our strength lies in the fact that united, as one city, we are strongest.

There is still much work to be done for our neighbors all over Fredericksburg, and by working together we can accomplish any goal or tackle any problem set before us.

As for me, I plan to continue my service to this city and I would ask that residents consider doing the same through one of the many organizations that help to enrich our lives and those of others within our community.

My family and I look forward to many great things in the future.
