Congratulations to all the candidates from last week's primary election in York County. Participating in a system that engages differing opinions and places the final decision in the hands of a voting populace is the epitome of our democracy in action. It is an honor to be a Republican nominee for York County Commissioner.

Also, I express a heartfelt thank you to my campaign team, led by honorary chairman Rep. Stan Saylor and campaign manager Joel Ogle. As a first-time candidate, I was unsure what reception might be in store as I pursued the position of York County Commissioner. The outpouring of encouragement, support and ultimately votes from community leaders, friends and a wide spectrum of fellow York countians was very gratifying.

As we move to the general election in November, I am eager to invite all York countians into the dialogue about how we better our community from Hanover to Wrightsville and Dillsburg to Delta working in a true collaborative spirit. This will be a great period in York County government.
