Thank you! Thank you for your support and thank you for your friendship! Thank you for the confidence you have expressed in me and for the humbling opportunity you have made available to me. I pledge to work my heart for you, you can count on that.
Thank you to my husband Larry, and my kids Katie and Ryan for your love and patience! Thank you to Greg, Adam, Dora, Lauren, and Jeff for your great work! Thanks to all my friends, old friends and new friends, that have worked so hard in so many ways to make this night possible. I appreciate you deeply.
I believe I can make difference as Clarksville’s Mayor. For all of Clarksville – our young people, the ones born here, and the thousands that come here to Austin Peay and Fort Campbell and don’t want to leave, for the military retirees that bring their wealth of experience and perspective as an asset to our city, and for those folks whose roots are deep in this wonderful place, let’s make Clarksville America’s best place to live.
We’re on our way, but there’s work to be done and I want to help do it!
I promise you that I’ll seek out good solutions no matter where they come from, and I’ll listen to all sides before drawing any conclusion.
I’ll work hard to make sure that our city government is open and accessible to everyone.
I’ll work hard to link our academic resources, our military resources, our natural resources, and our amazing workforce into a 21st century economic engine.
Tonight is not the end; it is merely the end of the beginning. We have work to do and a city to serve. So I ask for you, just as you have so faithfully joined with me in making our case for Clarksville, join with me now in helping to make Clarksville America’s best place to live, work, and raise our families. Thank you!
