With the 2014 election now over, I wanted to write to express my deep and sincere appreciation for the opportunity to have served southeast Baltimore County in the Maryland House of Delegates for the last eight years. It has been a high privilege and honor to have been in a position to fight for a community which has been so generous to me. I wish the newly elected representatives much success in the years ahead.
I also wanted to extend my thanks to those who have been so supportive of my eight years as an elected representative. To anyone that I have had the chance to work with, who has volunteers or donated to my campaigns, or who has cast a ballot for me along the way, please accept my heartfelt thanks and deep gratitude for your trust and support.
Growing up in southeast Baltimore County, I have been blessed to have had no shortage of teachers, coaches, family members, friends, and mentors who believed in me and who have helped me along the way. Public service is a special calling that allows us to give back to our neighbors, friends, and family – making a difference in the lives of those for whom you care so deeply.
But public service does not require an elected office. There are no shortages of ways you can improve the lives of others, and I fully plan and expect to pursue new ways to continue serving. Indeed, the things worth fighting for before an election remain no less important after one. We simply cannot turn a blind eye to the problems and opportunities ahead, because the truth is that unless we collectively respond to these challenges and demand accountability of those in leadership, we risk squandering all of the great things that are before us. It’s just too important.
I believe that God is at work in all things and I am excited about where he might use my skills and abilities next. While I do not yet know what that might be, I trust that it will be a rewarding challenge. I hope that you will stay connected with me in the years ahead as we continue to build a better Baltimore County and Maryland.
Yours in eternal friendship,

It is rare for a candidate regarded as a front-runner to seek out debates; such events are traditionally regarded as benefitting challengers, who are most in need of exposure.
