I entered the House District 1 election for the betterment of our Southern Southeast Alaska communities and the desire to serve and represent our beautiful corner of this great state.
I would like to thank our supporters and volunteers for their tireless efforts, passion, and confidence in me. It is quite humbling, to say the least, and I am extremely grateful for each of you. It has been such a privilege and delight to meet and get to know more of our neighbors in Coffman Cove, Hyder, Ketchikan, Loring, Metlakatla, Meyers Chuck, Saxman, Whale Pass, and Wrangell. We truly have a remarkableregion with remarkable people!
We relentlessly campaigned over the last 5 months and ran the race we wanted to run, one that was respectful and focused on the issues that matter for our district. Given the short amount of time we were in the race and the fact that we were running against a 4-term incumbent, we are extremely proud of the race we ran and the excitement and support we have received and continue to receive.
I want to congratulate my opponent, Dan Ortiz, and wish him the best in the upcoming legislative session. I will continue to work with Mr. Ortiz and advocate for our community in my capacity with the Borough Assembly, public utility, Veteran organizations, and other community support roles.
Moving forward, we will take time to rest, regroup and focus on family and community service. As my wife Carolyn says, we will continue doing what we can, with what we have, right here, right now. Again, I am grateful for the outpouring support and encouragement, I will forever remain committed to our communities, state, and country.
