A sincere thank you to all who supported me during the primary and general elections! Especially those who wrote letters to the editor, hosted yard signs, and generally spread the word to “Vote Kate”. Your support is humbling and uplifting. I’m grateful that we’ve reached a time where a new board can hit the ground running. A big congratulations to Randy and Brian on their wins! We are lucky to have each of them as a part of our OIFR leadership. There is much work to be done and I believe strongly in the collaborative ability of our community and department to navigate the challenges ahead. I’m optimistic about the future of OIFR!
