I believe the correct decision was made. Instead of focusing on a runoff, I will immediately turn my attention to the issues I committed to during my campaign, the issues that District 9 residents have told me are their priorities: jobs, crime and safety, and education.
I look forward to working with Andy Berke as mayor and the new council, as I know we all share these concerns for our city.
I look forward to expanding on ideas presented during the campaign, and acting on the ideas of community members heard during this campaign. These concerns and solutions will be my focus in moving District 9 forward.
