As you can see, I was unsuccessful in being elected as Council Member for Ward 2 on the Cheverly Town Council.
There are many people that I would like to thank, first and foremost, I need to thank my wife Marisa and our two boys, Ted and Joe. Throughout this campaign, she has been the steadiest presence for me. Tomorrow, May 4, is our wedding anniversary and she continues to be the best part of my life.
I also must thank those individuals who supported me over the past several weeks. I was very proud to have the support of both State Senator Victor Ramirez and Delegate Jolene Ivey and because of their efforts, I feel that I was a better candidate this year and am disappointed that I could not carry the day yesterday.
Here in Cheverly, I spoke a lot about the warmth and welcoming nature of its residents and how everyone looks after one another. This feeling is clearly seen in the efforts of Susan and Joseph Pruden, Nikki Greco, Rachel Dabney-Rice and Amy Rice, Andrea Cerulli and David Rapp, and Riley Grimes. All of these individuals made significant contributions to my campaign, and I am in their debt and extremely grateful for their support.
There were also a number of individuals who lent their support to me by signing on to a letter that was distributed to residents as well as others who offered help, advice, and words of support over the past several weeks. I thank all of those individuals as well. From the bottom of my heart – you are all additional examples of what makes Cheverly such a great place to live. To those of you who hosted my sign in your yard, I thank you for that visible support.
Finally, and just as importantly, I must thank all of those individuals who voted for me. I had so many conversations with friends and neighbors over the past several weeks while out in the Ward and I had hoped that we would be victorious and I would have the opportunity to work for all of you – listening to your concerns and questions – and talking with you about the best for Cheverly.
I am, of course, still here in Cheverly, and will remain active in the other endeavors that I am involved in, and look forward to seeing everyone down the road.
