Dear friends and neighbors:
I cannot thank you enough for all of your efforts in support for my candidacy for the Maryland House of Delegates. We ran an incredible campaign over the past 18 months, from our widely-attended campaign kick-off all the way to our intensive GOTV effort. And none of it would have been possible without your support. In fact, you helped us knock on 20,000+ doors, make 30,000+ phone calls, send 100,000+ pieces of mail, not to mention the dozens of campaign events you hosted in your homes to share our vision with your neighbors. In fact, our focus on the issues helped us secure more organizational endorsements than any other candidate. Unfortunately, yesterday we finished fourth, when we needed to secure one of the top three spots in order to win the Democratic nomination for the General Election. That said it has been a truly amazing journey and one that I am grateful for taking with you.
At the same time, we still have much work to do to ensure that: everyone has access to high quality, affordable health care; all of our children receive a good education enabling them to reach their full potential; and everybody has the opportunity to earn a good living. As you know, these are the causes that I have dedicated my life to over the past 20 years, and I hope you will continue to work with me towards achieving these goals, so that everyone in Maryland will have the chance at a good life. Thank you again for all of your support and for everything that you do on a daily basis to make District 16, Montgomery County and Maryland a better place to live for all of our residents.
