I am most appreciative to each person who saw fit to give me their vote.  I did virtually no campaigning and spent no money on my run for the House of Representatives.  To receive over 1% of the votes cast is beyond my realistic expectations.  The vote total shows that there are many people in the 11th district  who agree that the current Congress (and most likely the new Congress) are not working to reach compromises that benefit the country.  Our elected Congressional Representatives are primarily focused on party politics and getting re-elected.  I encourage everyone to remain engaged in the political process to try to bring about the changes we need.
