I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who supported me in my recent quest to be elected to the position of councilman for the Town of Gaines.

This was my first time running for public office and it has been a great experience. I have learned a lot and made many new friends. I truly appreciate everyone’s support from allowing me to place signs on their property, to offering me words of encouragement and advice, and most importantly their vote.

I would also like to personally thank Joyce Riley for her professionalism and for running a clean campaign that didn’t revolve around personal attacks toward the opponent, which is sadly all too common, but rather the issues of our town. Now it’s time to get to work doing what is right for the people of the Town of Gaines.

Humbled to be their councilman.
