Dear Fellow Ward 3 Residents:

To my supporters, thank you for backing and believing in me and our campaign. I could not have gotten this far without your unwavering endorsement, whether through donating, volunteering, or through your vote. I remain steadfast in my belief that we have a great City and look forward to staying involved and supporting our new City Council Member, Steve Fletcher.

I spoke with Steve and congratulated him on his hard work and successful campaign for the Ward 3 City Council seat. I expressed my support and willingness to work together to move Minneapolis forward. Steve will be a great addition to the Council and I ask that you join me in supporting him when he takes office in January.

More than anything, my efforts and your enthusiasm have only fueled my passion for Minneapolis and the things we can do together. We have challenges but we all have a part in successful outcomes. Please know that I am still committed to advancing the priorities that I championed during the campaign – improved public safety, more urban green space, investment in our infrastructure and expanded economic opportunities for all residents.

Perhaps Abraham Lincoln sums it up best: “I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so his place will be proud of him.”Again, a heartfelt thanks.
