Thank you Piedmont for your wonderful support and votes! My heartfelt gratitude to everyone who took the time to talk with me, read my website, watch me on the various Zoom forums, and consider me for the Council seat. All of you made this such an incredible experience for this first time candidate.
Although I am disappointed the election did not turn out the way I had hoped, I am committed to public service and look forward to offering my services in a way that will benefit our City. There is never a shortage of work to be done, so I am sure I will find a place to volunteer and contribute.
We are extremely fortunate to have Jen Cavanaugh’s expertise and energy for a second term. A special thanks goes out to her for her kindness and camaraderie during the campaign. As our newest Council member, Conna McCarthy will continue her dedication and hard work for our City.
I would like to extend my deepest, most heartfelt thanks to all of my diehard supporters. So many of you gave me good advice, good ideas, and kept my spirits high. I can’t thank you enough for getting me through my first campaign.
A big, loving thank you to my wonderful husband Mark for his help, support and encouragement. He was my campaign committee of one and I wouldn’t have it any other way. And last, a thank you to Kapo, our loyal 4 legged family member. She logged a lot of miles carrying my “Vote Herrick” sign and brought a smile to many people’s faces. She’ll miss the campaign trail.
I wish you all good health, a lot less stress and lots of hope as we go forward into 2021.
In community and with joyful gratitude.
