Wow! I knew this was going to be hard. I didn't know it was going to be THIS hard!
The last two months have been a complete whirlwind. My time is not my own, my house has turned into a makeshift campaign headquarters, and my feet and knuckles hurt from all the walking and talking. But, man, this journey has been amazing. I can't believe he amount of support that has turned out behind this effort.
As we go into the last week I really have no idea how this thing will go. There is no doubt in my mind that our team has worked the hardest, but there could be all kinds of things that alter election day results. It could rain, it could storm, a tornado could blow through and wipe out our polling locations.
Regardless of how things end up on Saturday (although in my heart of hearts I know we're going to get this) I am so thankful for this opportunity. Not only has my southside community rallied behind me, but also our neighbors in West Meadowbrook, Diamond Hill, Downtown, and Riverside. I have had the opportunity to meet so many people, and hear so many stories. I have also learned that the concerns about our schools are not unique to one particular neighborhood. Everyone wants the best for their children, everyone loves their children, and everyone believes that we can do better.
Thank you so much for your support. We have one week left, and we can do this!
