My congratulations go to Carolyn Jewett for her election as our next District Court judge. She worked hard and ran a tenacious campaign, and the results prove that it was effective. I wish Ms. Jewett well on the bench.
I also want to thank my many supporters in this election for their devotion of time, energy, ideas, and encouragement. Their letters and endorsements were, for me, very moving. These special people carried me through these last few months. For that, I am very grateful.
My biggest thank you goes to my wife, BJ. After 25 years with her, I continue to be blown away by her love and support. As my campaign manager, she poured her heart and soul into this campaign. I have no words to adequately express the depths of my gratitude for her.
