I would like to congratulate and thank Sam Brewer for my introduction to small-town politics.
Without him, I would not have had the opportunity to learn as much as I have about the expanse and breadth of our beautiful county andhe ineeople herein.
From Strawberry and Pine, Christopher Creek and Young in the north to the Tonto Basin in the south and Payson, Rye Creek and Giselanbetween.Iave met a lot ofolkshat now call friends, and feel welcome in their communities.
I would like to thank everyone who voted for me, Democrats and Republicans alike.I didn't think it was possible in today's environment, but I believe that Sam and I had what you would call a "clean race."
I raise my glass to the winner. Thanks again, Sam.
Roger Freeman, Payson
