My fellow Puebloans. Pueblo Freedom and Rights and the citizens of this community have turned conventional political thinking upside down. The passionate, dedicated voters of Pueblo defied all odds and succeeded at a task that many deemed impossible. You have held your legislator, Senator Angela Giron accountable in this Recall Election, and you are rightfully proud to have done so. I want to take this opportunity to thank all those who voted for me to fill the Senate seat. I also want to thank the following: my wife Kathryn who has been my biggest supporter and my biggest critic (which has kept me firmly grounded), the members of my election committee who successfully coordinated the campaign throughout these four short months, all those who advised us during the campaign, Becky Mizel and the State and County Republican Party for all their support, the donors who gave so generously to help fund the campaign, and all of the volunteers who worked so hard to walk precincts, make phone calls, make and wave signs and support the campaign in many more ways than I can count. Without your help this campaign wouldn’t have even gotten off the ground. And now the Recall Election has its rightful place in Colorado history and it is time to look to the future, the 2014 election which will be here before we know it. I will do everything possible during this coming year to assure you, the voters that you made a wise choice in electing me to be your Senator and that I am worthy of being elected for a full term in the coming election. Thank you very much and may God bless us all and these United States of America.
