Wicked Local Burlington Friday Posted at 2:00 PM, As a senior citizen, I am…
To the voters of Bedford, Burlington and Precinct 3 in Wilmington,
I am humbled and honored with the overwhelming support you showed me in electing me to a third term as your State Representative. We earned a majority of your votes in every precinct in Burlington and Bedford. Thank you and I will return your faith in me with a renewed effort to advocate for our district.
To our volunteers, thank you: for all the calls you made; for the doors you knocked; for the signs you held; for the donations you made; and for your encouragement, I thank you very much. Thank you to the dozens of supporters who wrote letters to the editor, and for everyone who shared our messages on Facebook. You offered your help, even before we ever asked.
We ran a positive campaign, and stuck to our core values. We heard your concerns, and explained how we have responded to them. We have addressed the traffic problems that frustrate us each and every day. We supported our schools with increased funding and we involved our students in the operation of government. We know that government cannot solve all of our problems, but it can be part of a solution that involves our businesses and residents. We were available, we listened, and we responded.
We heard from our veterans, parents of school-age children and our seniors. I am committed to working for your interest in my next term. Even if we do not agree on every issue, I am there to address your concerns.
To those of you who supported my opponent, I will continue to listen to you and work hard to help make your lives better. If you posted a sign on your property this last month, I will respond to your concerns, no matter whose name was on that sign. This does not mean we will always agree, but it does mean I will always listen and consider all sides of the issue.
There is still work to do. I return to the legislature to stand up for working families and small businesses who need our help. Thank you for your support so we can continue this important work.
