Thanks to everybody that was on the road with me, all of the villages and some of the villages that I visited for the first time. Mr. Wagner and Mr. Parham I would like for us to come together, we’re a one United Democratic Party and I must applaud them for running a clean campaign as far as I see it because I don’t see the negative. I saw the positive and I believe that by coming together we could move forward. We will deliver Toledo East to the United Democratic Party come 2020. I want to thank the entire team in Toledo that made it possible.
