Thank you to Joey Lutz for giving us a primary- and the chance to have data on where I need to work.
Thanks to William Pace for getting 650+ good signatures only to show how our Board of Elections pays no heed to the sunshine laws or the voters rights act. That battle isn’t over.
Thanks for the help of Gary Leitzell and David Greer who helped me reach a lot more people than I would have alone.
Thanks to AJ Wagner for being someone I can support in the upcoming race.
I look forward to working with Mr. Greer to get our ideas out.
