Scott Holcomb: What We Did
District 81 winner shares his thoughts on the election's outcome.
We won. And we won by a wide margin.
I want to sincerely thank you for your support. This was a campaign that was built on a positive message of service. And it was a campaign that was successful because of the service of so many volunteers. Thank you to everyone who walked with me, canvassed, made phone calls, held meet and greets, donated, and supported my campaign. You made this possible.
The truth is, we weren’t supposed to win. During the reapportionment process last year, this district was purposefully designed for a Republican to win. That’s not typical political hyperbole; it’s a fact.
That didn’t happen. And it didn’t happen because the voters of this district are good, decent people who vote for the best person. Republicans, Democrats, and Independents supported my campaign.
I am very grateful to the voters of this district for embracing my message of service and I’m proud of the voters of this district for rejecting the dishonest campaign of my opponent.
Now that the campaign is over, the work begins. I’m prepared to fight for ethics reform at the Capitol, and I’m committed to protecting school funding.
I will continue to keep you updated, and if you have an issue or a concern, you can always reach me here.
