Thank You!!

I’m just back from the City Hall’s vote counting session, and I know many of you’re anxious to know the outcome of the election result. So here are the unofficial numbers:

Lawrence R. Bleau        135

Jeffery S. Gomoljak       35

S. M. Fazlul Kabir         208

Christine L. Nagle        281 (winner)

Patrick L. Wojahn        341 (winner)

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of my neighbors who have put their trusts in my platform and voted for me.

But first I’d like to thank my wife and my sons who have supported me throughout the campaign. I’d also like to thank all the volunteers who have spent so much time and energy in this campaign.

My sincere thanks also go to the important endorsements I received from the UMD for Clean Energy and UMD Student Government Association (SGA)’s former president Jonathan Sachs.

Congratulations to Patrick and Chris – who will be representing our district in the next two years. I look forward to working with them at the civic association and other community levels.

This year’s election has seen amazing number of voter turnout – a whopping 583 (in 2007, this number was around 340). This has set the record in the history of our city’s election. Here are the results of the 2007 election:

Patrick L. Wojahn             221  (winner)
Jonathan R. Molinatto    163  (winner)
Lawrence R. Bleau            137 
William S. Flanigen          77

I’d like to thank all other candidates for running vigorous campaigns to make this huge turnout a possibility.

I hope to stay in touch with all of you in the coming weeks and months and serve all of you in any way I can.

Thank you.



Please Vote!!

    Dear Fazl, ASAK.

    Congratulations on running a hard race and doing a great job. I watched from afar and was very impressed. Although I know it didn’t turn out the way you had hoped, I’m sure you have made numerous friends and have grown tremendously during the process. I’ve found that there is nothing that teaches you more about yourself than an election campaign.

    Keep fighting my friend!

  2. Thank you Saqib for the kind words.

    I think you did an amazing job with your campaign. You have great ideas and I really appreciate that you have a website/blog to discuss your thoughts and to receive input from others in your community. It’s good to know we have such thoughtful and caring neighbors. Don’t be discouraged by your loss, I hope to see you running again the next time around! Even though the campaign is over, please keep up with the blog. Take care!

  4. Thanks Rebekah for your kind and encouraging remarks.
