I, Sissy Carter, must express my deep and abiding gratitude to everyone who voted for me in the Portal City Election and the warm, friendly and supportive comments I received from Election Day voters. I am extremely grateful for the support and encouragement I have received on the campaign trail. Even though we did not win the battle, it did not stop there. I will continue to fight this corruption that our Town is facing. There is much work to be done.
I want to congratulate Mrs. (Nan) Finch on her win for the Portal City Council. I know that her service will come with many challenges, and I hope she uses her own judgment in making her decision.
Last, but certainly not least, thank you to my husband, Mike, and daughters who supported my campaign in countless ways, and to all my friends who just spoke encouraging words. I could not have run this race without all of you all.
Although the Election is over, the campaign for fairness, equality and transparency in the Town of Portal continues.
