To the editor:
While the election results did not go as we hoped, I am pleased with all that we have accomplished and want to thank all my campaign team and volunteers (and their families) who were unwavering in their support, dedication, and commitment, Thank you!
To all my family, friends and supporters throughout this wonderful city and region of ours, we couldn't have made it this far without you. I applaud you for your hard work, your generosity of heart, and for your contribution for a new, vibrant, and prosperous Thunder Bay region. Thank you!
I want to congratulate Patty Hajdu for her win, and for her dedication to our communities in Thunder Bay - Superior North and our beautiful country of Canada. Your contribution over the years is very much appreciated by all. Thank you!
I also want to congratulate all the other candidates Anna Betty Achneepineskum, Bruce Hyer, Youssef Khanjari, and Alex Vodden for their contribution and commitment to our city and region.
Last but not least, we appreciate the efforts and hard work of the people at Elections Canada, the media, and all the volunteers across our beautiful country.
The people of Thunder Bay – Superior North have spoken through the democratic process. However, I can assure you that our message for a new vision and a brighter future for all has come through loud and clear.
It is now up to the new government and elected members of Parliament to respond to this call. A call that will put people first, and will resonate with one voice in a spirit of unity and cooperation!
And finally I would like to thank all the people of our city and region for your kind hospitality at the door, your words of encouragement regardless of party affiliations, and your great generosity of spirit! Let us keep working together for a better Thunder Bay-Superior North and Canada.
It has been an honour and privilege to be of service to our communities, and I am now looking forward on taking some needed time off to spend with my 91-year young mother in Italy.
