Quite simply: I could not have done this without you.
It was all of you — the friends and volunteers who believed in me enough to make financial donations, dial phones, knock on doors, join me at events, and even ride miles on a bicycle beside me — that made this win possible.
Your support means the world to me. It kept my energy up, my enthusiasm high and buoyed my spirits every day.
I hope to continue to earn your trust and belief in me. I have worked hard over the last months to learn about county government and am working to put a transition team in place who will help me hit the ground running when I take office in January. I will be working hard every day between now and then to set priorities, build relationships and listen to the ideas of Erie County residents.
I truly believe I can make a positive difference during the next four years to help create a vibrant future for Erie County. I want to create a collaborative, open government that works closely with partners inside and outside of Erie County to make our home the place we all know it has the potential to become.
Thank you again for all your support. I am excited to begin this next chapter with all of you beside me.
All the best,
