Sending heartfelt thanks out to everyone who voted for me in this election. Every vote was an affirmation. I have the gift of your encouragement, if not a city council seat, and you’ve inspired me. Sending special thanks out to those who supported the campaign itself — financially or with the treasure of your time and labor. Also, a note of respect to everyone who voted for any candidate; you honored our democratic tradition and we can all feel proud about that. To Lizzie Haskell and Brian Pine for Burlington Ward 3 City Councilor, your commitment to serving Burlington is obvious and it’s a blessing to have you in our community. Thanks for making this race as special as it was.
