The Feb. 28 election is over. National and state politics continue to challenge us, and frighten many. The times, and the tides we may face, will continue to require strong local leadership with a deep knowledge of the community, a track record of service, and proven experience at problem-solving.

The Issues tab on this site added additional substance.

I thank each and every person who took a yard sign, knocked on doors for a block, helped inform my knowledge of issues, or just gave an encouraging word. I hope you will stay in touch and retain faith in the power of ideas, the value of facts, and the belief that even one person -- you -- can make a difference.
