Thank You for Your Support

I am happy to announce that yesterday I won re-election to my fourth and final term on the Dallas City Council with 67% of the vote.  Thank you to everyone who went out and voted yesterday!

I’ve been humbled by the outpouring of support for my campaign.  From our wonderful volunteers who made phone calls night after night, walked door to door day after day, and greeted voters at the polls for the last two weeks (and you’ve got the sunburns to prove it!) — to the hundreds of people who endorsed me, put up yard signs, and made financial contributions — THANK YOU.  Your hard work and steadfast support paid off and I am deeply appreciative.

My campaign team was amazing and a pleasure to work with.  Thank you, Michelle, Murray, James, Eric, and Anna — you guys worked incredibly hard and you’re the best!

We had a great time last night at the wonderful victory party that Jeff Bryan and Elizabeth Polanco threw for us at their lovely home on Swiss Avenue.  Thank you, Jeff and Elizabeth!

Lastly, I received messages of congratulations from two of my opponents — Brian Oley and Vernon Franko — and I thank y
