Growing up in the South, my mother stressed the importance of thank you notes from an early age. After the holidays she would even threaten to return gifts if I didn’t get my thank you’s out before New Year’s Day! And while I’ve always been partial to a classic pen and paper note, there are simply too many people for me to thank and I want to make sure I thank them in a timely manner (but don’t worry, there will still be some mail heading out in the coming weeks too). Below are some important thank you’s:
- Supporters: Thank you for the likes on Facebook, encouraging words, notes, website visits, and everything else you’ve done to let me know I have your support and vote. It’s humbling to see so much kindness surrounding my campaign and I’m thankful for each of you.
- Letter writers: I would like to thank all of you who took the time out of your day to craft an endorsement of me and my campaign to our local papers. I appreciate not only your support but your willingness to share your thoughts and reasonings with fellow voters.
- Sign holders: Thank you to all of those willing to host a sign or two in your yards. I know in a small community sometimes it can be a bit scary to literally place your politics in your yard, so please know that I appreciate this gesture.
- Donors: I have been extremely fortunate to have people contribute to my campaign to ensure that the voters of Waynesboro can learn more about my experience and candidacy. I truly appreciate your contribution.
- Campaign volunteers: I would be completely lost in this process without the valuable time and energy of the campaign’s volunteers. Thank you for collaborating with me and being the star players of this campaign. Your behind the scenes work and coordination is very appreciated.
- My family: Last, but certainly not least, none of this would be possible without the support of my husband and best friend, Eric. I could not have asked for a better partner in life. My boys have been a constant source of love and inspiration for me. And at the end of the day I’m ultimately reminded that I’m not doing this for my children, I’m doing this for all of our children.
