Dear Members of the Lexington Community,
After waking up this morning I can look back at our campaign and be proud of what we accomplished. Through the help of countless volunteer hours; out on the doors, on the phones, holding signs, talking to friends and doing everything we could in this election, we were able to finish in second place in an unusually crowded field.
I want to offer my congratulations to Kathleen Lenihan on her victory, and I wish her the best in her role on the School Committee. In addition, I would like to thank Neerja Juneja Bajaj, Melissa Cunningham, Yury Mashkovich, Burc Oral, and Hengameh Taraz for stepping forward to make their voices heard in this election.
To all those who supported me over these past few weeks, I am truly grateful to all of you for so generously donating your time and effort, it is because of you that we were able to make this campaign as successful as it was. Throughout this campaign I have consistently said how important I believe it is for young people to get involved in politics and government, and because of that fact I will continue to remain active in our community and work to improve the lives of its residents. While the results were disappointing for all of us, I cannot thank all of you enough for your support and encouragement, and look forward to opportunities to work together in the future.
Steve McKenna II
