Many thanks to those of you who took the time to vote in the special election yesterday.
It was ambitious of us to ask people to get excited about an election with a single, uncontested ballot item. But that’s the approach I took to the campaign, and I had a lot of help. Many of you were cheerleaders for me from the beginning, contributed financially to the campaign, and gave your time to make the campaign a success.
In the past few weeks, we reached almost every neighborhood in Carrboro on foot. We completed our door-to-door canvassing even after it became clear there would be no other candidates in the race. I hope we demonstrated to the community that we took the campaign seriously, just as I will take my role as alderperson seriously.
Thank you for your support. I’m looking forward to working with you.
