Thanks to all of you for joining me on this journey of running for office we have taken together this last year. So many of you have told me your stories, given me your support, volunteered for me, hosted events, and made campaign calls. You have put up yards signs, installed field signs, attended events, and joined me in the “rolling up the sleeves” part of campaigning. It has been a long road, but our efforts have been worth every minute. We have won!
Our work now has a different focus. Clackamas County is a great place to live and will become even better as we focus the next four years on job creation, public safety and roads! We have a budget to balance, debt to pay off and make sure we give priority to focusing on what Clackamas County residents support while still working with our partners outside of the county.
We have much to do. I am so humbled that you have entrusted Tootie Smith and I to serve you. Because of our key wins, the commission has a balance that will represent listening to residents and making sure basic services in Clackamas County are addressed.
Thank you to all who attended and celebrated with us on November 6th. Please enjoy the pictures and memories from a very fun evening.
