Leadership with a whole new attitude

I would like to thank all of you for your support during this primary campaign. It has been a true pleasure to meet and work with so many fine Democrats in nearly every corner of our great state.

I encourage all of you to continue to promote positive change within our state and within your communities.

Thank you all!
