Taking the trust seriously

Published 9:14 pm Tuesday, November 10, 2015

It has been a privilege to have served Isle of Wight for the last 14 years and I look forward to serving for many more. I will continue to play an active role in making our community a better and safer place.

Now that the election is over, I am able to reflect on the last year and my campaign for the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s position. I am amazed at how fast this past year has flown by. This incredible journey has strengthened the many relationships that I have with my peers, my co-workers, my neighbors, my supporters and my fellow citizens in Isle of Wight. These relationships have given me the fortitude and resolve to work to the best of my ability and fully appreciate the public trust that has been bestowed upon me by each of you in keeping our community safe, not only for our children, but for everyone that lives and works in Isle of Wight.

I do not take this public trust lightly, but with great humility and respect for those who have given it to me. For those who did not support me in the election, I hope to earn your respect, support and trust in my ability to serve each of you and our community. For those who did support me I can only say thank you and promise you that your trust and faith in my service to each of you has been and will be earned daily as I continue as your Commonwealth’s Attorney.

Lastly, I want everyone to know and understand that my door is always open to listen to your suggestions, your complaints and. Hopefully. your encouragement.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to continue to serve each and every one of you
