From Kevin Lawrence, Milford Township:
I would like to take time to congratulate (Huron Valley Schools Board of Education trustee-elects) Bonnie Brown and Jeffery Long on a job well done with their campaign and wish them good luck on the (board). May they keep moving things forward for the betterment of our children and (may) their ideas be heard. The campaign for school board was quite unique in its own way — nine candidates all could do a great job, always staying friendly. I am sure that, with all the great ideas that came out during the campaign, Bonnie and Jeff will use them as well to keep things moving along in the right direction and keep Huron valley schools on top.
I would also like to thank all of the candidates that ran with me on a job well done — Karen Wallis, Kim Galbraith, Robert Artinian, Russ Krawczyk, Joe Ghislain, and Xuan Avallone. This being my first time running for any type of public office, I learned a lot, made lots (of) new friends along the way, and I will not stop here as I stated in the Spinal Column (Newsweekly) a few weeks ago.
I will now get ready to toss my hat in the ring for Milford Township trustee in 2012 and try to make a change at that level. I feel, as Milford has grown for the better over the years, it has lost part of its past along the way. We need to bring that back to make it grow as our hometown.
I would also like to thank all that voted for me for (school board). Thank you.
