Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support, for your involvement in government and for caring about issues that affect our great state and country. It was the most amazing experience for me to be involved in the legislative process and I never can repeat often enough how much I treasured the honor you bestowed on me to represent you in our State Capitol.
Together we were able to accomplish great things in the past 12 years. I loved the battles we took on and our successes to protect our clean air and water, to keep toxics out of the environment, to provide a good public education and health services as a right, not a privilege; to help small businesses, the disabled, children, seniors, veterans and consumers; and to make progress in government ethics, campaign financing and fairness.
I have been deeply touched by your kind words and actions as I start a new phase of my life. Our governments still have many challenges ahead and I encourage you to stay in touch with your newly elected leaders. You have provided input and ideas to me that truly helped shape our deliberative democratic process.
Before I sign off with my last newsletter, I also want to make sure we all thank all the wonderful district office staffers who have served us so well: Ellen Goldsher, Karyn Davidman, Cosette Winter, Michelle Feldman, Nancy Rotering and Alyssa Knobel, as well as the wonderful interns who served with us during the summers.
I hope to stay involved in trying to make our community and state a better place. If you have thoughts and ideas, be sure to share the sunshine with me. You can reach me at email@example.com. If, on the other hand you have complaints, problems or grumblings and think our problems are insurmountable ... kindly contact our new generation of office holders! I wish all of you good health and happiness in the coming year.
