2012 has been a fabulous year and I want each of you to know how appreciative I am of you.
This year as one of the state Governors, I have been afforded the opportunity to get to know a number of you not just in a professional setting, but on more of a personal note. This has been the most rewarding part of the journey for me…connecting with and being available to each of you. We have laughed and we have cried, always knowing that together we can make a difference.
My heart is full and each of you has played a role in filling it. It has been an honor a privilege to serve you this year.
There are great things to come in 2013 and I for one will be welcoming them with my arms wide open!
Thank you for the opportunity to serve,
