Letters to the Editor

The Editor:
Nancy and I would like to express our deep appreciation for the support we received in my campaign for the state legislature. While we are disappointed with the results, we are encouraged by our community. The willingness of all voters to turn out in such overwhelming fashion has shown the greatness of this nation.
We would like to thank each of you who supported my campaign – from the public officials to the working families and the many who volunteered. Nancy and I cannot thank you enough for your support.
I am proud of the message we brought to the forefront. I am proud to have been able to stand with you for a stronger, prouder community. It is my firm belief that the message of my campaign – through all of you – has laid the groundwork for the change we talked about. So many of you voiced your desire for that change and through that, I believe we are on our way to a better, more prosperous America.
God bless you all.
Col. John Hobberlin (Ret.)
