Thanks and best wishes from Randy Vanderhurst

Dear Editor,

The tribe has spoken, and I was voted off the island, to use the “Survivor” jargon. I most certainly respect the democratic process we enjoy as Americans and am grateful we have that privilege. I would like to thank the Post Independent for their gracious endorsement in the Carbondale mayoral campaign. I appreciate the professionalism of the PI in endorsing one candidate without disrespecting, diagnosing, and disposing of that candidate’s opposition.

I would very much like to thank the Carbondale voters who supported me. I am most grateful for their support before, during, and after the election. I feel that the calls, letters and e-mail that I have received made the sacrifices of the past ten years worthwhile.

I wish Michael Hassig and the new Board of Trustees the very best in solving the huge issues facing little old Carbondale. I would sincerely hope that they fulfill all of their campaign promises.

Randy Vanderhurst
