I want to congratulate Supervisor Mar on his successful re-election as our District Supervisor. I am optimistic that Supervisor Mar will look at addressing many of the concerns raised by residents in his next term. The election is over and everyone should work with Supervisor Mar to ensure that the neighborhood is safe, clean and an enjoyable place to live and work. I know there were a lot of bad feelings between my two running mates, and their supporters, during the campaign. I hope we will all put the election behind us as we move forward. We should all help Supervisor Mar be successful, because his success will ultimately benefit our neighborhood.
I want to personally thank each and every neighbor who supported us through the campaign. I want to thank the many merchants and neighbors who posted signs supporting our campaign in their doorways and windows. A special thanks to each and every volunteer who spent hours, hand delivering fliers, working on the website and holding up signs on election night. We may have not been successful this time, but we definitely had an impact in keeping the other candidates focused on direct problems faced in the neighborhood.
As we go forward, I hope we will all be able to work with Supervisor Mar to improve the neighborhood. Remember we can't always rely on the city. We must all do our part to clean up the neighborhood.
