Thank You!

Thank you all so much for your support of my campaign for the North Carolina House. Thank you for your sacrifices, your financial support, and for caring so much about the future of our great state to try and make a difference.

This campaign was never about me – it was about us. It was about those of you who wanted your government to be a little more efficient, a little more honest, and a lot more effective. It was about the gentleman I spoke to at a rally in Raleigh who, for over a year still can’t find a job. It was about the small businesses that are struggling to stay afloat, and those which have already gone under. It was about those of you who want your government to work as hard for you, as you do for it. This campaign was about YOU. And I hope that I helped lend each of you a voice during this election.

Although the outcome of this election is not what we would have hoped for, we have much to be proud of. It is truly an honor to be a part of such a historic election in our state. For the first time since 1898, Republicans are now the governing party in North Carolina State Government. And while we have all worked so hard to win the majority – our work has just begun. We must now govern. Our state faces intense challenges – a $3.5 Billion budget deficit, 10% unemployment and our economy is a shambles.

It won’t be easy, and the media, liberal special interest groups and unions will do everything in their power to vilify Republicans. Our leaders need our help more now than ever. Please help them help us. Offer them your time, your moral support and most importantly – hold them accountable for promises made.

Thank you all again for your faith in me to serve as your voice in Raleigh, and I look forward to continuing to serve you on the Cary Town Council. We can all hold our head up high knowing that we did make a difference, and were a part of history.
