With the final votes recorded, we can now put the primary elections behind us and get back to the business of the people of Kane County. I would like to personally congratulate all of the candidates who were victorious on March 15th, and even those who were not. If you ran a good clean campaign and left everything you had out on the field, you and your supporters should all be proud regardless of the vote totals. Its not easy to put yourself out there and be judged by your neighbors and friends. It takes courage, especially to run a clean campaign.
I also want to congratulate all of the spouses and families who continually stand beside the candidates and put up with the long hours of campaigning. Its not always easy on families, but I know that I for one could never do it without the love and support of my beautiful wife Elissa and my two wonderful boys.
So now that the votes are counted and before we begin to look ahead to November, let's all take a moment to catch our breath and return our focus to the matters before the County. I have been proud to maintain the 5 year tax freeze, and will be even prouder to extend it into the future.
