New school trustee hopes to live up to expectations

Dear editor,

Wasn’t that a party?  The election, I mean.

I was so encouraged to see more people demonstrate their democratic responsibility by voting.  You deserve to be thanked by our community for this.

To be a candidate means putting your ego at risk. That feeling stays with you to the end.

I woke up Sunday morning feeling that my success Saturday night was due to so many factors, and the only ones I could concentrate on were the people who supported me emotionally, financially, going door to door, putting up and taking down signs and by voting for me.  There exists a feeling of gratitude for that support that is difficult to describe in words.

Courtenay, thank you and I hope I live up to expectations.  I encourage all Courtenay citizens to make sure that they follow me and other elected officials over the next four years and that you keep our feet to the fire.  The ball is now in your court too.

Cliff Boldt

School trustee-elect
