Thanks Newton County

The Covington News - - Opinion -

Dear Edi­tor: The elec­tions are over, and I want to per­son­ally thank the cit­i­zens of Newton County, who live in District 3, for sup­port­ing me in my cam­paign ef­forts to be their next Board of Ed­u­ca­tion mem­ber. I wish the out­come would have been dif­fer­ent, but I am very thank­ful that I had the op­por­tu­nity to run in this race. My cam­paign team worked hard, and I be­lieve we left no stone un­turned. I com­pare my loss to the Su­per Bowl and the World Se­ries. Teams work so hard to get to those games, but in the end, there can only be one of­fi­cial win­ner; how­ever, each team that plays is a win­ner in its own way. I be­lieve that even though I did not of­fi­cially win this elec­tion that I am a win­ner be­cause I did some­thing that I be­lieve in and be­cause I did my very best.

Since the elec­tions are over, it is now time for us to hold each elected of­fi­cial ac­count­able, be­cause our chil­dren and our grand­chil­dren’s fu­tures are at stake. Our chil­dren and grand­chil­dren de­serve the best, and hope­fully, the cit­i­zens of Newton County will stand with me to en­sure they get the best ed­u­ca­tion that they de­serve.

In clos­ing, I have learned many things while run­ning my cam­paign, and I will use this knowl­edge in my fu­ture en­deav­ors. It has been a long jour­ney, but it was worth the trip. Again, I want to thank the cit­i­zens of Newton County for sup­port­ing me, and I hope to see you again on the cam­paign trail.
