While we may not have gotten the result we wanted tonight. We achieved something far greater. We had thousands of conversations with our neighbors at their doors about healthcare, an unfair tax structure, what investment in education looks like, about the beauty of our lakes and natural environment and so much more. We sent hundreds and hundreds of handwritten, meaningful postcards. Talked on the phone and poured our hearts out into this race.
In short, we showed up, as underdogs, and showed our communities what a truly engaged Democratic process looks like. We’ll be resting for a few days but we’ll be back soon. Continuing to host forums about our broken healthcare system, to make sure seniors know their concerns are our concerns, to preserve land and open space, to break the stigma surrounding addiction, to fight for economic development plans that honor our rural character and embrace the future and fight for a state where all of us can thrive.
To everyone who supported me and to everyone who donated and/or volunteered time. Thank you for believing in me, but moreover, thank you for your hope in a future for everyone. This was never about me, but about our collective values and vision.
I love you all and thank you for showing up as your best selves for our community and Connecticut.
