Well we came up a little short. But a quick acknowledgement to our new councillor and best wishes to Brian as he serves the community.
I have to thank everyone who did support me; from my campaign team that worked tirelessly to the volunteers that put up signs, did drops and fought valiantly on election day to drive out the vote. A special thanks to Alex Forrest and his team of fire fighters.
The last three months were a remarkable journey and I truly appreciated the kindness of the people of St. Vital as my family and I campaigned through good weather and bad. To all those friends we met along the way, it was wonderful to reconnect.
I also wanted to thank all the people of north St. Vital for the nine years I had the privilege of serving on your school board. They were great moments of personal accomplishment that I will always remember.
Finally to Bei and Alphonse, nothing is more important than family. We are embarking on a new opportunity for renewal. The holiday season is upon us and then it's off to China!
