Chattanooga, I thank you for the tremendous support and encouragement you’ve shown me since announcing my candidacy last September. This opportunity to meet and engage with people across our community – people who love our city and want to be part of making it better – has been such an important contribution to my life.
My campaign spent thousands of hours talking to neighbors, participated in endless calls, knocked on doors and talked to voters about issues they care about like jobs, opportunities for their families, safe neighborhoods, great streets and a Chattanooga that truly belongs to everyone.
While I wish the outcome had been different, Chattanooga voters did the hard work. You researched the issues, asked the hard questions and took time to make your voices heard.
Now, I ask you to join me in offering your support to Mayor Tim Kelly. He will need all of us to pitch in to make a better Chattanooga for all. Despite this conclusion to my campaign, I share in the collective optimism for the future of our wonderful city.
Thank you again for your support.
