I would like to express my extraordinary gratitude to the residents of the City of Rockville for choosing me as a member of your next City Council. I eagerly await the opportunity to serve as your voice in city government! Congratulations to my fellow councilmembers Tom Moore, Julie Palakovich Carr, and Beryl L. Feinberg and mayor Bridget Newton - I'm looking forwarding to working with all of you. Thank you to all of the candidates for a substantive, issue-driven, and well-fought campaign. I hope you will join me at the inauguration at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 17, at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre, 603 Edmonston Dr.
