As I write this, I do not know the outcome of the election for the county council. What I do know is that I am extremely grateful. I am grateful for each of you who has worked on the campaign and who has engaged in this long process of multiple elections. I am grateful to each of you who asked hard questions that provided me with the opportunity to ponder and articulate thoughtful answers. I value the relationship I have developed with Rick Hughes – a man who cares deeply about these islands. Campaigning has strengthened my appreciation for our community and my commitment to this place. Regardless of the election’s outcome, I look forward to working with others to help craft a healthy and vibrant future for our island home.
