It has been my profound joy to serve as Kitsap County Commissioner for the past eleven months and I thank you for the support you provided that allowed me that privilege. It has been an extraordinary experience, and I am grateful to each of you for believing in me. Of course, I am deeply saddened and disappointed that I will not be able to serve a full-four year term and help realize the great things that we envisioned in the future for Kitsap County.

You were there for me from the beginning and I cannot express my gratitude enough to you – for your willingness to doorbell with me, make contributions to the campaign, work on fundraising events, endorse me, write letters to the editors, and on and on. We did give it our all, and you were there time and time again – when I asked for more. In the end, the numbers were close, but not enough to get me over the top.

I will be wrapping up my duties over the next two weeks and leave much work “undone” that I had hoped to accomplish. I have one last favor to ask of you now. Please continue to stay engaged in our community and remain part of the conversation. I often stated, during the campaign, that our future was at stake in this election, and our collective voice still needs to be heard in the months and years ahead.

In the meantime, thank you from the bottom of my heart – for all you have done to support me and good government in Kitsap County.
