Even though I have been serving in this position of Justice of the Peace
for nearly six years,this was the first year I had a campaign.
From the filing day in February to November 6th,
I have gained new appreciation for the entire process of a campaign.
The best part of campaigning was meeting new people that live in my district.
I appreciate all those who allowed me a spot for signs on their property,
for the politeness of those who answered the knock on their door
and accepted my card or took a moment to talk about how I could
represent their interests.
I'm thankful the campaign is over and grateful for the opportunity
to continue serving the citizens of Benton County.
Most of all, I'm thankful for the blessings I receive daily
as a citizen legislator in Benton County,
a dairy farmer,
