Thanks For The Memories

Those of us that are old enough might remember Bob Hope’s theme song ‘Thanks for the Memories’ that played at the end of his television show.

Well that’s the way I feel as my recent run for city council came to an end.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to everyone that voted for me and supported me in the September 14th primary. Thank you to all the folks that worked so hard distributing door hangers, handing out flyers and allowing me to place a sign in their yard. A special shout out to the saints at New Life Church for their amazing support and prayers!

The campaign was a great experience for me and a time that I will never forget. I met so many wonderful people and learned so much about our city. Your hospitality and kindness was overwhelming!

My congratulations to all the other council-at-large candidates that will be moving forward into the November general election. You ran great campaigns and were all very gracious to me.

I intend to stay involved in civic issues, especially those that affect seniors in our community. I look forward to working with Lakewood residents and city council on the development of the old Lakewood Hospital site and on a more comprehensive recycling and waste reduction plan.

Again, ‘Thanks for the Memories’ and I look forward to seeing you on the streets.
