My parents, brothers and friends who helped with everything from signatures to financial support. My campaign team, for keeping me on track and providing insight. Of course, to all those throughout the district and state for not only getting me out of the starting gate but taking me to the finish.
"It is so humbling to be able to represent the citizens of this state. While I did not get 100% of the vote, from here forward, I will represent 100% of the citizens. I will do so in manner which demonstrates kindness, compassion, and fairness for all. It is an honor to be in this position and again, thank you from the bottom of my heart."
