You are the people who care, who engage, who question. The ones who look beyond life’s day to day demands and take part in determining what our community tomorrows will look like. You, who care about making democracy work, and made the time to get out and vote.
For inviting me in out of the rain, when I knock on your door to talk about our community.
For coming out to the candidate meet and greets
For providing forums for civic engagement
For asking the hard questions
For offering your time, energy and resources
For taking the time to discuss the future of our communities with friends, family and neighbours
For engaging in any way you could with our democracy.
For making democracy work.
To all my fellow candidates: It has been a pleasure campaigning with you all. It has been a great campaign, and I am proud to say that it has been an election campaign filled with courtesy & civility.
