I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my friends and family members who supported me throughout my campaign for Sunnyside City Council Position #4. Although I was not successful in this campaign, I am thankful to have been honored to represent the citizens of Sunnyside for the past four years.
I hope that my presence on the council in the last four years has made a difference to the future of our wonderful city. I plan to continue to attend and participate at city council meetings in the future. I will just have to take a different seat this time. I will continue to look at the future of Sunnyside through eyes filled with faith, hope and love for this fine city and its people; I believe that great things are yet to come.
I would also like to thank my opponent Bill Gant for his willingness to serve his community. Good luck to you Mr. Gant, I wish you the best and plan on calling you often as my representative. God Bless you and your beautiful family.
A very special thank you to God for standing by me every step of the way, I could not have served four years without him by my side. To all the special Angels that God sent my way-Mr. Ignacio Resendez who never left my side for a minute and kept me on my toes. It has been a pleasure to have gotten to know you better Mr. Resendez; you are a true leader and mentor for all of us. Carol Stone, who is just an incredible inspiration and is always willing to go the extra mile to help a friend out. I am so proud of you Carol; you will do such a good job for the people of this community.
To all my wonderful family and friends who supported the campaign financially or in other ways, we could not have accomplished all that we did without your awesome and generous donations and support. Words could not express the gratitude I hold in my heart for all of you. God Bless you and your families, today and always.
Our campaign has continued to promote a family of citizens and like a family, we will continue to work on finding ways to improve and enhance our wonderful city. I say WE with a big smile on my face, because it is not about me or I, but absolutely about US.
Please join me in congratulating our "New Leadership", as we move forward with new direction for the future of Sunnyside.
