Honored and humbled

Dear Editor:

I am honored and humbled by the response I received from Pitkin County voters as a first-time candidate. I want to thank my family, friends, supporters and everyone I had the opportunity to meet on my campaign trail as you all helped me in my quest. I also thank those of you I’ve yet to meet who voted for me.

I am excited about taking office and working with you to keep our county the special place it is. If I did not get your vote, I hope you will work with me as well in the coming months and years, as I believe we all share a similar vision for our community. We have challenging times ahead but they are also exciting times. I feel very fortunate to be part of this historic election. Thanks again to all of you.

George Newman
