Dear Friends and Supporters,

Thanks so much for your support, especially during our hard fought run-off campaign. I am sorry things didn't turn out differently, but I have appreciated the opportunity to serve Austin in this unique capacity these last few years, and look forward to returning to my role as a more traditional community volunteer for many years to come.

I have experienced many ups and downs in my career, and the "downs" always lead to wonderful next chapters. In addition, I have always appreciated the chance to learn new things and to work with incredible people from all kinds of backgrounds. This most recent experience was filled with both.

Austin is a very special place, and I appreciate the role each of you plays in making it that way. My family and I will forever be grateful for your support. I want to make a special point to thank my wonderful campaign staff and Council Office staff. I have been truly blessed to have had the chance to work with each and every one of them, as well.

Thank you for this opportunity!

Yours truly,
