I want to thank my fellow residents of Blowing Rock for honoring me with your vote last week.
I am deeply moved by the expression of confidence from the Blowing Rock voters, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Being an effective Mayor involves listening to constituents, turning their concerns into workable proposals, and building a consensus to implement them. I cannot do this job satisfactorily without the involvement and openness of the residents. As I campaigned, many of you took time to share with me your ideas and your concerns, and I sincerely appreciate your openness to discuss what really matters to you about our town.
Our beautiful town faces many challenges, but we will overcome them together. Thanks again for the privilege of serving as your mayor.
