My heartfelt and sincere thanks to the 8,675 voters of Goffstown and Manchester (Wards 3, 4, 10 and 11) for their support yesterday.
Running against a now 10 term incumbent was always going to be an uphill slog. I didn't win, but I ran a clean campaign and stuck to my principles. I am proud of my 40% showing, and will continue to spread the message of individual liberty to Granite Staters.
To my donors and volunteers, thank you! I couldn't have done it without you. From signwaves to lit drops to providing moral support, having you by my side made it all worthwhile.
The future for liberty in New Hampshire looks bright. Many liberty friends and colleagues did win. The Libertarian Party received 4% of the vote, allowing it to automatically qualify for ballot access next time.
For the first time in too long, we have a Republican governor at the helm. I encourage the party to embrace its platform and institute policies that support "free people, free markets and free enterprise".
Congratulations to all who won in the name of liberty! A special shout out to state representative John Burt, who provided guidance and good cheer to me throughout my campaign. Keep up the tremendous work you do!
In conclusion, I leave you with T.S. Eliot (Little Gidding):
"For last year's words belong to last year's language. And next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning."
