An appreciation to Ward 3 voters

Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

I wish to express my deepest appreciation to the voters of Ward 3. Their gracious support of my candidacy for the City Council position was so encouraging. They trusted and opened their doors to a relative stranger countless times. They gave their time and interest to educate a new candidate about the issues. They were informed, communicative and warm and their input strengthened my campaign platform measurably. I so enjoyed getting to know them and am inspired by them to stay actively involved .

Over and over they thanked me for running, but it is they who deserve the appreciation. They are such a fine group of concerned voters. I thank them so much for their support, consideration and kindness and for making this election such a positive experience for me.
