With the final results of the election in, I want to express my gratitude, dedication, and humility in being elected 3rd District Supervisor. I can truly say that this campaign has been a very positive experience. We are blessed with great communities, a beautiful environment, and lots of very talented, thoughtful, and caring people.Letter to the editor, John Haschak, Dec. 3, 2018.
There are too many people who powered this campaign to mention them all. We made over 5,000 phone calls and knocked on 1,200 doors. Thank you to all who called, walked, endorsed, donated, and helped in a variety of ways.
I very much appreciate the contributions that Georgeanne Croskey and John Pinches have made to this district. Supervisor Croskey stepped up and thoughtfully and energetically represented our district. I have appreciated her keeping me informed on the issues and I hope to continue projects on which she has worked. As supervisor for 3 terms (12 years), Mr. Pinches left his mark in many ways that have helped make our communities better. His sense of civic duty is something to which we can all aspire.
A huge ‘thank you’ to the voters of the 3rd District for participating in every step of this election. I am proud to live in a community where so many people care so much. I am humbled by the opportunity to represent our communities on the Board of Supervisors.
I will continue to be accessible to all and I look forward to building stronger communities together. If you have any ideas to share, please call me at 707-513-6166 or email me at [email protected].
