I want to thank the voters of West Fork for choosing me to serve as Mayor. It is a responsibility that I do not take lightly, and I will work to represent all of you.  I am especially grateful to the impressive number who came out to vote – even when the weather turned nasty. 

I would like to thank my opponent for running a competitive campaign and for sending his message of congratulations. I appreciate our campaign committee and the volunteers who worked so hard. Kay and I are grateful to those who put up and took down signs, wrote words of support, helped with the costs and kept us honest, made us laugh, and fed us on Election Day. We could not have made it through this without the help of friends, family, concerned citizens, and good ol’ boys and girls. We wanted an open and positive campaign, and that is what you helped to accomplish.  As the campaign progressed and we were able to renew friendships and meet many residents, we realized without a doubt that this election was not about just us but about all of us.   

Many friends and acquaintances have commented that they are seeing a better sense of community through the efforts put forth in this election. Let’s continue to be positive, put aside the critical rhetoric and discontent, and portray West Fork in the positive light that we deserve.  Thank you all for using your voice, your vote in this special election; I will do my best to represent all of the people of this community.
