Dear Friends:

Although obviously disappointed by the outcome, I am standing tall with head held high! As should you!

Together we ran a fantastic campaign - of which I am extremely proud. I thank you for your sincere kindness, unyielding generosity and unrelenting efforts. You were truly amazing! I know how difficult it is to balance everything in life but you found the time and energy to help me pursue continuing the job that I love!

My appreciation and heartfelt gratitude for your efforts cannot be adequately expressed in words. Rest assured, your support has had the biggest impact! I stand and say "Thank you!"

Cynthia and I are truly blessed and appreciative of the outpouring of support and well wishes. We are fine - smiling as usual and doing what we love to do - working for the residents of Suffolk County!

Thank you again for all that you do.

My sincerest thanks,

Steve
