I would like to take this time to congratulate Mr. Aaron Kaufer on the fine showing during the recent elections. No, Mr. Kaufer did not win his bid for state representative against Phyllis Mundy. But, Mr. Kaufer, you have nothing of which to be ashamed. In fact, you should hold your head high. This was your first time running in any kind of election, and, against Mrs. Mundy, who has served 22 years as our state representative, you held your own.
You received 44 percent of the votes. You did an outstanding job of showing people in the 120th district that you cared about all of us and that you had great plans for the district.
Mr. Kaufer, you knocked on doors, stopped people on he streets, and advertised on TV. You're young and you showed you have the qualifications to become a great state representative in the future.
So, Mr. Kaufer, take this experience and build on it. I'm sure if you continue to show you care, you will win the next time around. So, watch out Mrs. Mundy, Mr. Kaufer is in town.
People need not say Happy Holidays. They should say Merry Christmas. Jesus is the reason for the season.
