As I write this letter of thanks, I don’t yet know the outcome of our election for City Council. But no matter the outcome, this campaign has been a success given my primary goal , to start a community conversation. I ran for a position with an incumbent so that the issues could be debated in public. Without a contested seat, we would not have had forums to engage us, I would not have had the opportunity to meet so many of my fellow city residents and we as a community would have lost this chance to discuss and debate together about our Port Townsend.

I want to thank everyone who opened their doors to me as a stranger when I was doorbelling and shared their concerns and ideas for the future of our town. I want to thank everyone who reached out to me to help me with my campaign and I want to thank all my family, including campaign family, who have supported me in this endeavor.

Onward and upward.

We do know the outcome of the election now. Every resident and visitor of and to Port Townsend and this country should take heart that when out of touch and out of control government abuses power "We the People" can and do stand up for ourselves. Monica spent much of her free time personally connecting with as many residents as she could. This is a true grass roots story. Monica and other new blood now need those same residents to support them on the No Term Limit City Council. This is the beginning of re balancing 20 years of corrupted thinking. Term limits are needed. It is a long road to restore representative government locally. No one does it alone. Thanks so much to engaged voters.

The harder they come-the harder they fall-one and all.
