This has been a long journey together.
I started this campaign nearly a year ago as a long-shot outsider up against the status quo, and with your help, we turned this into a serious, aggressive campaign that forced the politicians to talk about issues they didn’t want to talk about.
While we may not have gotten the result we sought, I want to you to know that your generous support for my candidacy is something I will always remember. This campaign was made up of many people who worked hard every day – you put up signs, opened your homes and talked to your neighbors. For that, I will forever be grateful.
And our efforts were not in vain. Together we created a voice for Phoenix taxpayers who are frustrated by the status quo and who were looking for something different. We changed the dialogue, and I hope, changed the future.
I talked a lot in this campaign about making Phoenix the greatest city in America.
I truly believe that, and while I may not have won this election, I’m still committed to that.
Again, thank you to all friends, old and new, who joined me on this journey. I could not have done it without you.
