Letter to the Editor | Many took part in vital process

Congratulations and appreciation to everyone who ran for an office in Champaign County and beyond.

If you prevailed, you witnessed your hard work realized, and if you did not, you have a life experience to look back on that few have had.

There are so many people to thank that I will simply thank you all, every voter, volunteer and family member; all of you are part of the effort.

The citizens came out, the students came out, despite the lines, and so many voted; thank you.

The campaigns worked hard bringing you the message, and they toiled endlessly to reach the goal; thank you.

Now to the task at hand and the work to serve you well. My efforts will focus on being a tireless voice for you, representing Champaign County Board District 7 and all the citizens of the county.

This is what democracy looks like.

Again, my sincere thanks to everyone.

ERIC THORSLAND
