Thank you Ward 2!

Thanks to all of my friends for the kind words and thanks to all of my supporters for your votes.  I am honored to represent ALL of Ward 2 and look forward to doing so.  Getting out and meeting more of my neighbors was the best part of the campaign.

Special thanks to Adrienne Charles who ran a vigorous and positive campaign.  She is a committed citizen of this city and we are lucky to have her.  We have worked together with the Environmental Protection Board and I look forward to continuing that.
