Thank you, thank you to all of the Skaneateles residents who recently supported me through out the mayoral race.
Each candidate conveys their own leadership style during a campaign, whether it be through their literature, signs, answers to media questionaires or by their example when dealing with the public. My spirit of initiative was most evident to those observing the simplicity and consistency of my engaging each person who generously spoke of their issues and concerns.
Democracy is a gift that our forefathers formulated for us. When implemented, people execute this right as a citizen to choose his or her next leader ... and Skaneateles residents did that.Thank you for allowing me to give you a choice. Thank you for participating with me, sharing your time, your thoughts, your questions. Thank you for standing with me whether it was at informational forums, reading the articles in the newspapers, or giving me of your precious time as we would review my literature.
You see ... I really did win! I met new residents, reacquainted with many, which really raised this level of engaging the political process, allowing me to accomplish a goal ... giving you a choice, a choice to elect a public servant to represent your interests. Truly, I wish the best to the new elected officials.
