I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Karen Faulkner on an awesome campaign! She showed so much courage and passion over these past few months, and it was an honor to work with her.
Though we fell a little short, over 26,000 people voted for Karen yesterday. 26,000!!! What a victory!
Our campaign consisted of a young, passionate candidate in her first bid for office, a ragtag group of volunteers with (mostly) zero political experience, and very little money. Yet we managed to get almost 45% of the vote. That is a true testament to both Karen and our system of democracy, which proves that money and power aren’t everything in politics in this country.
Thank you to everyone who voted!
This has been a life-changing experience for me, and I will be forever grateful that I got to go on this journey with such fabulous people. I learned a ton about politics (the good, bad and ugly), and made some incredible friends along the way. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
