This being Thanksgiving week, it seems appropriate to thank the citizens that voted for me -- all 4322 of them. When I spoke to the Council today, I carried a piece a paper with that number on it to remind me of the people that trusted me enough to vote for me. It's a great confidence builder.
Also in tomorrow's Independent back page, there will be a Thank You ad to all of the Indy readers. As best I can figure, about 7 to 8% of my 9.65% of the votes came from Independent readers. Of course that doesn't make the rest of my voters any less valuable.
I thank you all.
I hope you will join me as I continue to support citizen involvement, neighborhoods, natural systems and equality in this wonderful city and region.
