I want to express
my deepest appreciation to all of you who encouraged me and
worked tirelessly to support my candidacy for Richmond City
Council. As you have no doubt heard by now, neither Eduardo
Martinez nor I won, with Eduardo coming in a close 4th, while
I placed 5th.
I have sent my congratulations to Nat Bates,
Gary Bell and Tom Butt, who were the top three vote-getters.
For me, the campaign has been a very rewarding part of our
collective journey: rich in love, support, new relationships
and deepened friendships. Though it's disappointing that
we did not prevail in this election, our work in and with
the community most definitely continues.
I am happy and
blessed to know all of you, and you will still see me at
meetings, gatherings, events and riding my bicycle around
I continue to stand with the people of Richmond and
look forward to working with you to achieve a more healthy,
peaceful and equitable community.
Feel free to contact me
anytime, as I value your thoughts and ideas.
