To the editor:

The campaign is over for this year. I ran for the Leavenworth County Commission because I saw the dysfunction and need for sanity and good governance. I was so blessed to have the support of my husband, Greg, my family, friends and neighbors in this endeavor. Thank you all.

The County Commission campaigns were the least contentious of all of the races in our area. You don’t have to be ugly to run a good campaign. Tuesday night, I conceded to my opponent, Jeff Culbertson. If he runs the county like he ran his campaign, we are in good hands. I wish him the best and look forward to a good working relationship.
