Dear Friends:

First of all, I would like to thank you for your support.

My campaign for Lee County Commissioner has been an extraordinary experience.  We are so lucky to be able to live in such a wonderful community and the campaign has certainly confirmed that.

However, it is with a heavy heart that I have decided to suspend my candidacy effective immediately.  Due to a recent serious health issue with a family member, I am unable to meet the obligations of the campaign at this time. I did not come to this decision lightly, but as many of you know my family is always my primary responsibility and will continue to be.

I plan to continue on as mayor of Sanibel and look forward to seeing many of you over the coming months.  Also, please know that I will be returning all of my campaign contributions.

Finally, I want to thank all of you again for your support and encouragement during the campaign.
