Thank you to all one million Wake County citizens for allowing me to serve you as a Wake County Commissioner, Knightdale Mayor and Town Councilman for the past 27 years. It has been my honor to work with so many of you to ensure Wake County is a great place for our children, grandchildren, and future generations. My expectation is that this is a shared goal we will all continue to strive for. Yesterday’s vote was hard on my family and me. Yet it is heartwarming to know Wake County is one of the best places to live and I have been fortunate to play a small part in our phenomenal quality of life. May God bless you.
