The past few months were an exciting mix of energy and hard work. During the course of my campaign for alderman, I enjoyed making many new friends and visiting with hundreds of residents all over Ward 5. It was a rewarding experience that I’m convinced will bring life-long personal benefits.
I thank everyone for their support — giving time, offering encouragement and making campaign contributions. It was humbling to see so many invest in me. I also thank those who voted on my behalf.
While the outcome was not what I had hoped for, Ward 5 will be in capable hands with Jeremiah Dumas as alderman. I appreciate the civil campaign he ran and I look forward to working with him as a friend and advocate for Starkville.
Again, as a candidate, I thank the voters of Ward 5 for the chance to directly participate in the political process. As Americans, let us never forget that blessing of liberty or take it for granted.
