To the Citizens of Lacey Township:
In November of 2010, I was elected to the Township Committee in order to bring a new voice to a governing body that had been under one-party rule for half a decade. Along the way to my election, I met with many people with many different needs. During the last two years while serving I’ve met even more. I enjoy helping the people of this town as much as I can. Whether it is working with various citizens groups, reaching out to an individual with a problem, or sitting on the dais during a town meeting, it has been a pleasure to serve.
One question I have gotten repeatedly since my election is this: “Are you going to run again?” I have thought long and hard about this. I have sat with my family and friends and discussed my political future many times. It is not a decision that I came to lightly. After much thought, I have decided to focus my future in a different direction. I will not be seeking a second term on the Township Committee.
In the remaining months of my term I will continue to fight hard for the people of this town as I have in the past two years. I will continue to work with my fellow committee members on the issues that matter most: taxes, a post-power plant future, quality of life issues, and much more. At the end of this year I intend to make sure that Lacey is in a better position than it was when I took office in 2011. I thank the people of this town and look forward to continuing to serve you for the remainder of this year.
