Congratulations to Bob Hargraves and his win (on Tuesday). He ran a very good campaign.
While I did not prevail, I would not have done so well if it were not for the hard work of my steering committee: My mother, Chris Wood; my chair, Rick Gilles; my treasurer, Kathleen O’Connor; Michelle Collette; Jennifer Mieth; Carolyn Perkins; Tom McGrath; Maggie Lowry; Nancy Gallant; and Eileen Violette.
And a special thanks to those who were not on the steering committee, but whose volunteer assistance was above and beyond the call of duty: RayEllen Gilles and Art Campbell.
In the scheme of things, the best news is that Obama won. At least on the national level we can look forward to a refocus of our priorities and a break from the disastrous and outrageously expensive policies of the last eight years.
Thanks again to all who supported me and worked so hard for our cause.
