It was a great privilege to have my name placed on the ballot, but it was far more rewarding to meet so many great people and families of Chilliwack Kent along the campaign trail. I am grateful for so many of you who took the time to listen to the purpose of the BCNDP campaign, and it was particularly meaningful to me that you shared so many personal stories and ideas of how to improve our community and province.

Although I wasn't successful in my bid for MLA and I knew going in that the odds of winning were very slim, I am proud to have stood with the courage of my convictions as an example to our young people in the province. I wish Laurie Throness well in his reelection to work as MLA for all people in our riding.
Lastly, to those of you who offered and gave of your time, talent, and treasure to support the Patti MacAhonic campaign, I want to publicly thank you for helping me to run a strong campaign. I am inspired by the commitment and passion of our grassroots volunteers who came out to work tirelessly alongside me and the over 6,500 voters who came out and voted for me, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
