On the eve of tomorrow’s election, I wanted to thank everyone who has supported me in this endeavor. To my wife and daughter who have been with me through every step of this journey, thank you both. It has not been easy, but we have made it through and we are better for it. To everyone who had a kind word of support, who listened to me when I spoke, who donated your time or money, who allowed me the privilege of displaying my signs on your lawns, thank you all. None of this would have been possible without you. When I was at my lowest you gave me the energy to carry on. When I thought I didn’t have any fight left, you reminded me of why I was fighting in the first place.
This journey began for me over a year ago. I compare this campaign to running a marathon and I am at the last mile. It is through your support that I have made it this far and it is with your support that we will finish this long journey with our heads held high.
Whether tomorrow ends for me in a win or in a loss, we as a community have accomplished so much. We have raised awareness to the issues we see in our local government. We have made new friends, built new relationships and come closer together as a community. We have built a network of neighbors that will be there on Wednesday, no matter the outcome of the election. To me that is the biggest victory we could ever win.
We have shown that party politics don’t matter. That we can vehemently disagree on some topics, yet come together and fight for the things that we do agree on. That we can put aside labels and work together for the greater good, for our neighborhoods and for Upper Dublin.
Tomorrow when you walk into that polling place, no matter what anger and vitriol is thrown at you, hold your head high, stand proud and cast your vote. Do it with a smile and thank all of the volunteers that you see on your way in. Whether you agree with them or not, they have worked hard for what they believe in.
I look forward to seeing as many of you out there tomorrow as I can. I have laid out my case. I have said my piece. Tomorrow all I can do is thank each of you personally as I see you and hope that you will put your faith in me to lead Ward 3 into the next four years.
Thank you for your support!
