Ladies and Gentlemen I am so honored to have traveled this journey with you through the Primaries as a Candidate for Delegate in District 37B. My greatest joy throughout this process has been meeting you all, my neighbors and new friends... people with everyday needs looking for someone to reflect their values in Annapolis with honesty and integrity. I am humbled to have been welcomed into homes of so many that I've met along the way, as I've welcomed you all into my heart.
I've come away from this experience with many things that I hope we can all benefit from. This experience has taught me a great deal about the inner workings of our local political system. It is definitely not for the fainthearted and although we may have a ways to go before it is flawless, it is a great process that tests everyone that decides to enter into it.
I tip my hat to everyone who offered themselves as candidates and ran campaigns to showcase themselves and their talents. It takes courage and fortitude to put yourself into the spotlight for the sake of our community. Win or lose, even entering the race is admirable.
As a Republican party we are always adapting to meet the needs of our community. We break into teams among ourselves based on who we support in the primaries and we fight to the teeth to see them make it into the General.... but then a beautiful thing happens. After the furies of the primaries are put to bed, everyone comes together again, as 1 unified party with 1 unified goal, to advance the best that we have to offer in the General Election come November. This year our goal as a party is to re-elect Governor Hogan and get 5 new republicans into the state's senate so that the Governor can hold a veto. With the primaries behind us, may God bring us all together as a party so that we can work together to make these goals a reality.
God bless you all & God bless the Eastern Shore.~ Mimi Gedamu
