This was a big surprise! When I ran as a candidate I didn’t expect to actually get elected, but I wanted to lead by example and encourage others to become voting members and to run as candidates. Yesterday I woke up to a lovely email congratulating me on the board seat- and I was (am) ecstatic!
Thank you if you voted, and thank you if you voted for me. I’ll do my very best to do a good job, and I can’t wait to see how we can serve the community.
Here is a personal thank you video, pardon my casual wear LOL. I was in mum-mode, and it’s weekend 😀
