I must tell you how honored I am to have the privilege to represent the people of Rutland City in the coming session of the Vermont House.
As I visited with the voters in Ward 2, there was a wide range of concerns, from having to pay an additional fee each year for a special license plate registration to what is going to happen with health insurance and many other issues as well. Be assured that I will represent you with the utmost attention and consideration.
First, I must thank the voters in Ward 2 for the confidence and trust that they have placed in me. It is truly appreciated. As I have stated, I will represent you, the people, not the party or the special interest groups while in Montpelier.
There are so many that have contributed to my successful campaign, and I cannot mention them all, as I fear that I may forget one. To my good friends who wrote letters and walked with me through the neighborhoods on cold and rainy days and dark evenings, placing signs and many other details, I thank you. This campaign and my election could not have happened without their dedication and support.
I especially want to thank my wife, Patty, and my family for their patience and willingness to help promote my candidacy and the successful outcome.
It gives me pleasure to say that I have kept my promise to run a clean Vermont campaign and to that end represent the people of Rutland and the people of the state by using common sense, with a caring attitude for the future of our citizens.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
