Dear Friends and Family,
First of all, I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving! This is my favorite holiday and I have so much to be thankful for….. family, friends, good health, a beautiful state to live in and great weather (though I do wish we’d have more snow for the ski season).
The Jefferson County Canvass Board met today (11/21) to certify the election results. The bad news, as most of you already know, is that I didn’t win. The good news is that I got 19,289 votes (43.65%)…. pretty good in a district where Democrats make up less than 27% of the registered voters. Voter turnout (44,187) in HD22 was way above projections and that was one of my main reasons for running: to encourage more voter participation.
Jefferson County Democrats have a lot to celebrate. We won 14 of 18 races and both Jeffco School ballot initiatives passed. I had the most amazing campaign team and I can never thank you all enough for your support and encouragement. I learned a lot from this experience and, even knowing how it turned out, I’d do it all over again…… in fact, I just might!
Wishing you all the best,
