I would like to take this opportunity to thank my family and friends for supporting me through the last several months of campaigning, and all of my volunteers for their tremendous efforts to help make this primary victory possible.
Thank you to all of you for the support and trust you have placed in me.
I’m also deeply grateful for the confidence the voters have placed in me with their votes today. I am looking forward to a spirited general election campaign and I will continue to run a positive campaign based on issues.
I also want to thank Vince Trudell and his family for stepping forward to run in our district. I am very happy I had the opportunity to get to know Vince and respect his genuine concern for this district’s issues, his devotion to all of our families, and our communities. Thank you Vince.
As I look forward I am excited to talk about the issues that are important to our area. I would like to use my experience as a small businessman and a farmer to grow our local economy so that we have more good paying jobs for our families, expand economic growth, reduce government over-regulation, provide the best educational opportunities for our children and grandchildren, and reduce taxes.
