Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
-William Arthur Ward
I want to take a moment before Thanksgiving tomorrow to thank you for allowing me to serve as your State Representative. To those who live within my new district and outside of it, who chose to join my campaign and give many hours of your time to help me get my message out by knocking on doors with me, distributing fliers, hosting meet and greets, staffing my headquarters, making phone calls, delivering and collecting yard signs, and contributing money, I feel extreme gratitude.
I could not have gotten my message out without your help, and I will be grateful to all of you not only at this time of Thanksgiving but throughout my time of service.
As we pause to give thanks here in the United States, let us also pray for peace around the globe and let's especially keep in mind our service members, diplomats, and civilians who are experiencing the holiday away from their loved ones.
I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
