First, I would like to thank God, my family, campaign staff, voters, volunteers and generous contributors for their support in my bid for Hilton Head Island's Ward 4 seat. Thanks to the many supporters who could not vote for me for your calls and e-mails.
On Tuesday, I may have lost an election, but not my resolve to stay involved and continue my work to help make Hilton Head Island a better place to live, work and visit.
Our success does not depend solely on elected officials, but also on the citizens of Hilton Head. I ask that you get involved, attend meetings at Town Hall, serve on town boards and committees and help lift someone up who might need your assistance.
We are many communities but one island. Get knowledge. Get involved.
