I would like to congratulate all winners on their victories. Running in a race is not easy, nor will be your service of the people. Picnic cancellation notwithstanding, I was proud of all involved for running perhaps the cleanest election cycle in recent memory, particularly as it relates to campaign literature. Candidates stuck to their platforms, vision, and what they brought to the table.
I look forward to continuing my service on the Board of Education with Richard Wyatt, John Campbell, and Emily Morgan, and I appreciate my time on the Board with Jackie Coley. Your passion for our school district is indomitable, and I hope to see you run again.
