To the Editor:
I would like to thank the people of Oak Ridge that supported me for my bid for Oak Ridge City Council. Though I was unsuccessful, I still appreciate the opportunity that I was given to share my hopes and dreams for this great city. I have had the opportunity to travel all over the world, and when I tell people that I am from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, I say it with a certain amount of pride and swagger. I still feel that way, because of Oak Ridge’s place in history and how we have changed, and what we still offer today.
Though I was not chosen for City Council, I will contribute by volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. This organization directly helps our community, and it is an endeavor that I can focus all of my attention toward. I hope that I can serve you in this way because I want us to live in a strong community, and if you really think about it, what else is there other than trying to make our community and this world a better place to live for everyone?
Again, thank you for your support and let’s get behind our new leaders so Oak Ridge can remain a place that we speak of with pride.
