I never forget how lucky I am, especially at this time of year, to be able to work for you. Although the county voters have spoken in their support of district-only voting which means those of you in the Blaine and Point Roberts areas can no longer vote for me (or my opponent), I still believe I work for everyone. That will never change. I hope you will still think of me as your representative and contact me with your issues.
However, during this holiday season I am changing my focus a little. Instead of regular county issues, I will concentrate more on friends I have made during the years. I wish you the ability to do the same. Friends are the best reward we can receive. No matter what happens in our lives, friends are always in our hearts. And this is the perfect season to remember them.
I wish you all the time to appreciate the friends you have and make new ones. Next year will come soon enough where we can roll up our sleeves and get back to the business of county government.
