Carbondale candidate says thanks

Dear Editor,

I would like to say congratulations to Mark Whalen on his election to the position of Carbondale Town trustee. I also congratulate Ed Cortez on running a good campaign, and when he runs next year in Carbondale, as I’m sure he will, I wish him well. I expect he will make a good trustee.

Last, but not least, I wish to thank the people who supported me, either with their votes, or their time or money, and any combination thereof! The support that I received meant a lot to me.

The campaign process was an interesting experience and I learned more in that effort than I had imagined I might.

It was especially gratifying to see all the people who are contributing their time and effort to try and keep Carbondale a wonderful place to live.

I plan to volunteer, to a greater extent, and in some capacity, in Carbondale. In some small way, then, I look forward to making my personal contribution to our community.

Best regards,

Patrick Griffin
