But I wish most to thank the citizens, the voters, our neighbors, who care so passionately and fiercely for our city, who vote in great percentages, who speak so freely and unapologetically and who come out time and again for so many public events, so many projects, ceremonies, fundraisers, road races, bake sales, cleanups and the list goes on and on. Newburyporters make this city such a special place to live, such a pleasure to come home to. Placing your trust in me to represent your interests is humbling and gratifying.
I’ve benefitted greatly from my experience in government, something I recommend highly to anyone with a desire to return something to the community. Meeting so many of my neighbors personally and speaking with, listening to and learning from so many of them has been an education of a lifetime and a priceless experience. Public service has deepened and broadened my passion for Newburyport and what a great place it is to live. I offer my heartfelt thanks to them and remain at their service.
