I want to thank you for your love, support, & commitment throughout this race. We knew it was going to be tough. We fought fair with our heads high and with passion.
I’m very happy to see fellow Team Rockville members David Myles and Mark Pierzchala on the Council. Their voices will be critical in the years ahead. I congratulate Bridget Newton on her re-election and look forward to her representing all of our City. I also congratulate Monique Ashton and Beryl Feinberg on their election to Council.
The new Mayor and Council is a small step towards the vision I shared of a more inclusive City. We have more women and people of color serving but we have so much work left to do. We need to make sure renters, low-income residents, and communities that have been neglected in the past have a voice. We must continue to push for the change Rockville needs to be represented in all areas.
I may not have an official voice in the City, but I will never stop speaking my mind. I will continue to be active and vocal in Rockville. To face the challenges ahead, we all need to be willing to speak up and take action. I encourage you to get involved to be the difference you vision for our community.
