❤️ My greatest impression from this campaign is the overwhelming support of my friends, neighbors and community partners. I owe you all a huge debt of gratitude for your incredible efforts. Your faith in me gave me wings, even if for a brief moment.
As an independent candidate, winning a race against an established machine would be a formidable challenge. I truly feel that we gave it our best effort.
I know exactly what I could contribute to the BOE given the opportunity. As things are, however, I can and will continue making a daily contribution to our schools as a free agent.
One of my favorite questions during the candidate forums was: “What will you do if you lose?” And my answer will continue to be :”The same thing I’m already doing. Empowering and engaging parents and coming up with innovative strategies to solve our school funding crisis.”
I congratulate the winning ticket, Marilyn Roman, Joan Terrel-Paige and Mussab Ali, and hope that they will govern wisely. As for us, it’s back to work making our schools stronger and better for our children. The students need all the support we can give them and we will not let them down.
Thank you, my friends, from the bottom of my heart. I endeavor to continue justifying your faith in me with good works to come. ❤️
