I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your support during my mayoral campaign. I will be individually thanking all those who worked day and night on behalf of me and the New Democrats for Plainfield, but I wanted to give a community "shout out" to all the residents who came out to vote. Although we did not prevail, your energy and enthusiasm touched me deeply. I congratulated the mayor on her successful renomination as the Democratic candidate. And congratulations also to Bridget Rivers, who successfully ran for the 4th Ward city council seat. I look forward to having Bridget on the council with the rest of our colleagues. Now it is time for all of us to get back to work on YOUR behalf!
