I want to take a few minutes to congratulate Carrie West on a fantastic campaign! We sure did put up a fight. Please know that the race for City Council might be over and where you might not have won that race, you’re always a winner in our eyes! On a more selfish note, now we have you back in GaYbor where you belong. As always, until next week… much love to you all, Scott.
