I was a candidate for state representative in District 4 (Valparaiso, Washington Township, Union Township and Chesterton). Although I did not win, I did receive more than 48 percent of the votes.
I wanted to say thanks to everyone who supported me. It is humbling when I am out in the public (ie: at the Holidaze Arts & Crafts Show at the Porter County Expo Center) and people wish me well and congratulate me on the campaign.
I have always prided myself in helping others no matter how old they are, what political party they support, who they were, how much money they had, or even how much education they have.
And as Thanksgiving is here, I want to say thanks to everyone in District 4. May the holiday season bring as much joy and happiness in your lives as you brought to mine.
