Thanks from the Candidate

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support of our campaign. I am deeply grateful to you for the many ways in which you have contributed to our success, whether by serving as part of our inner campaign circle (you know who you are), voting as a delegate, attending the convention, serving as a divisional coordinator, encouraging others to vote for me, or by making a campaign donation.

I will honor the confidence you have placed in me by serving you to the very best of my ability the next three years as your Kiwanis International Trustee.
