I am grateful for the support and encouragement I have received from our business and community leaders. I want to specifically thank the following people for their guidance and support in my campaign.
I also wanted to give a very special thanks to Campaign Chair Martina Jackson & Campaign Treasurer Robert Fitzpatrick without whom I do not believe this would have been possible.
And the most important position in my campaign, of course, is the one occupied by my wife Claudia, without whom I would be lost.
