I want to congratulate Sean Williams, Denise Derkacs, and David Reagor on their election to county council. I hope they serve the people well and listen to their needs. This was a very unique race, and their effort has paid off.
I expected an uphill battle for this election being an independent, and it most certainly was. While disappointed I did not get elected, I am heartened by the fact that I ran a solid campaign, and garnered a significant number of votes.
Thank you to everyone who voted for me, put up a yard sign, donated to my campaign, gave me words of encouragement and listened to what I had to say. The real winners of this election will hopefully be Los Alamos County residents thanks to the variety of choices we all had.
I won’t be disappearing at all. I am still chair of the Community Development Advisory Board and will continue to serve in our community in any way I can. I will still listen in on county council meetings, and chime in when I can. I will continue to be a fierce advocate for the people of the county.
I’ll bet you will see me running for council again in two years. Will I still be an independent? That’s still up in the air.
