Municipal Election 2018Note of thanks from John Edwards

Note of thanks from John Edwards

At the beginning of this campaign, I had no idea what to expect. After four years of serving and making decisions as best I can, I go each door not knowing what to expect. It is with some trepidation when I stand alone outside the doors of homes. I am having so many conversations with the citizens of Ramsay.  People take the election very seriously. I’ve had polite conversations, tough conversations, inquiring conversations and positive conversations. It’s been a chance for me to really listen to the concerns of Ramsay residents and I needed to sit down and write this note to all of you – my supporters.

Being a member of council has been very rewarding. There have been some tough times, for sure. But without a doubt, the entire process of being out in the community, listening carefully, working together for the betterment of all, and making solid progress, has been a hugely rewarding experience. I have no idea how these few words can offer up any more than scant recognition for such genuine support so far, but please know that I am at my most sincere, when I say that the interest and generosity from you as I go door-to-door has truly touched me. I am profoundly grateful. How kind and encouraging to have been warmly welcomed into your homes and at your doorsteps for some good, honest conversations.

Thank you Ramsay.  You are top-notch, all of you, and of course, friends. I am deeply humbled to have been given the honour of serving as your councillor for many years.  I thank you for considering me when you vote this time around, and no matter what the outcome is, I am filled with hope for the future and gratitude for the entire experience.

With utmost respect,

John Edwards
