Although I lost my first and only run for a political office ever, I am so greatful for all the support and encouragement given publicly and privately to enter the race late without political parties backing or funding my campaign and without having a profile or photo on the voter guide (that was a surprise) to get our message out about the lack of access to the people we vote for, about the misguided decesions being made regarding the allocation of park funds as well as a host of other issues negatively impacting our neighborhood.
I was warned that people would vote blindly and mostly democraticly down the line, but I am thankful to know that each person who was able to veer off track and find me on the ballot as an Independent voted for me with the intention of choosing me to represent our mutual concerns.
I am also glad that my opponent Councilman, Costas Constanides, ran the race without the bashing and slandering that we have seen in some elections and extend my congratulations and hope that he will truly be a great representative for our community in District 22 during his 2nd and final term as Councilman.
Here's to keeping him on his toes.
