I want to share with you that I have just called my opponent, Rebecca Bauer-Kahan, to congratulate her on winning election to the State Assembly for District 16, and to wish her success. While there remain many ballots to count, the outcome is not expected to change.
It has been the honor of my life to represent our community, a community I love in a state I love. I am deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to serve as your Assemblymember. A big, heartfelt thank-you to my outstanding staff here in our District and in the Capitol, and for the amazing volunteer, endorsement, and donor support that gave us a strong, bipartisan showing. And my biggest thank-you to my husband, Dan, and our kids, Kate and Alex.
For the rest of this month, I will continue to serve our community as its Assemblymember in the only way I know how — happily, with all of my heart and ability. Thank you for the great honor and privilege to get to do so.
