To All My Supporters: THANK YOU!!
One of the most wonderful things in life is
to look around to find a sea of friendly faces
surrounding you. And during the last eighteen
months, that is virtually all I have seen. To be
sure, there have been difficult times. Yet, your
faith in me… your encouragement… your
cheerleading kept me going. Looking into the
face of the children, who deserve a brighter
future; watching the expression of desperation
and fear turn to a smile and a feeling of hope;
knowing that I have been asked to make a
difference – these were all the source of my
My wonderful husband and son have been so very
patient with me throughout the campaign. I love
them so much, and want to thank them for being
so incredibly supportive during this journey!
Yet, what drives me to continue is you… my
fellow Californians. We live in a place we all
love and care for so very deeply. And we want
this wonderful state to be the best it possibly
can for our children, and their children, and
their children’s children. The legacy we leave
is only as uplifting as the tools we leave
behind. I want those tools to be in their hands
so desperately – you have no idea.
While we did not win the seat… we won quite a
lot. We created more awareness in the big
political machines and the mainstream media that
we will not remain silent as this state slips
deeper and deeper into debt. Our voices are
mounting… and they’d better be ready!
Nobody thought that this puny little group of a
few thousand people living in thirteen separate
areas would amount to anything at all. It was
just a bunch of rabble-rousers that could be
calmed with a couple thousand muskets. Well..
they were absolutely wrong! And that message is
beginning to ring true today.
Evil prevails when good men do nothing – as the
saying states. You, my wonderful supporters,
have proven that we will not stand idly by and
“do nothing” as this state becomes a graveyard
for business, 48th in education, overrun by
illegal immigration, suffers the highest
unemployment in the nation, and big business
controls the purse strings. The sleeping giant
has begun to open its eyes to the reality of the
desperate need to take this state back and place
it into the hands of the people, once again.
I will not give up the fight! Anyone who knows
me is clear that I am not one to back down when
the rights of the people are threatened.
So please keep watching. Please keep pushing.
Keep up the pressure and I promise you this…
“I’ll be back!”
I love you all – please know that. To my team
and their families… I owe you a huge debt of
gratitude. Always remember – we do this all for
