I am thankful...
To the wonderful people of Boone County.
You went out of your way to exercise your right to vote in this uncertain time. I cannot tell you how much it means to me that you have entrusted me once again to represent you on our County Commission. I do not take your support lightly. I am humbled and honored to continue to serve you for the next four years. As always, I will endeavor to earn the trust you have placed in me.
To my opponent. I am proud of the campaigns that we each ran. Despite the heat of this election season, he set an example of civility and maturity that many other politicians would do well to emulate.
And to my supporters. I could not have succeeded without the support of Boone County’s best who volunteered their time, talent, and resources to my campaign. Whether you made a contribution, or put up a yard sign, or wrote postcards on my behalf, THANK YOU. Your faith and support keeps me going.
We are embarking on a new era in Boone County. It is inspiring to see an entire community working together to keep our democracy strong in the face of a global pandemic and our collective national anxiety. Your confidence only reaffirms my commitment to the seriousness of this job, and to the people who have placed their trust in me. Your example of courage and commitment will guide me in doing my very best for you as we move forward. Together, we will make Boone County the envy of Missouri. I am convinced there are good times ahead, beyond the many challenges we currently face, and I look forward to sharing them with you.
