We Did It!

For those that may not have heard, Charles Francis, Russ Stephenson, and Kay Crowder have announced they will not seek a runoff, so Mary-Ann Baldwin, Jonathan Melton, and Saige Martin will be sworn in as the new Mayor and Council Members along with David Knight and Patrick Buffkin on December 2nd! Thanks to all the outgoing council members for their service, but I am ready to get to work with this new generation of leadership.

I want to thank again everyone that supported me when I was running and for your continued engagement to help make this new slate of leadership a reality. I do not think it is hyperbole for me to say this is one of the best days of my life. Not just because something I have been working towards for a year has become a reality, but the city I love and have chosen to call home will now be led by people that truly represent me as Raleigh has officially elected TWO members of the LGBTQ community! This is truly a historic day for Raleigh and something we should be proud of!

Now is time for a little celebrating, but soon the real work begins. I can't wait to get to work with this new council to start shaping Raleigh's future into something that everyone can be proud of!
