I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came out to vote during the Republican primary this year, and I would like to say a special thanks to everyone who helped me during my run for office.
There is no greater way for a person to get involved and try to help change things for the better than running for public office, and even though the results were not the way I would have hoped, I am glad to have been a part of such an integral part of the political process.
I would also like to thank everyone who helped me get as far as I did, the assistance I received from crucial members of my campaign team was invaluable, so thank you for all that you did for me.
I would also like to congratulate not only my former opponent but every candidate, winner or not. Every person who ran in the election deserves a pat on the back for all the hard work that went into their campaign, and whether bitter or sweet, each and every candidate should be proud to have been involved in trying to make Hamilton County the best county in the country.
For those who were successful, remember that you hold a lot of influence over the fate of Hamilton County and that is a great responsibility indeed.
Thank you again to all who voted this election.
