To My Family, Friends, Neighbors, Supporters and Colleagues,
There are not enough words of gratitude in the Webster dictionary to express my sincere appreciation for the many acts of kindness you blessed me with during my campaign. For the past several months, I have been hard at work campaigning to ensure my election to the House of Delegates. Not because I am proud of my long-standing record to move the 70th District and Virginia forward, but I have been working hard so that I may be able to serve every constituent, so they might live healthy, happy and prosperous lives. While I am elected by citizens in areas of Chesterfield, Henrico and Richmond, I fully understand that each one of my votes impacts our great Commonwealth. When I vote to protect our land and waterways, the benefits of Veterans, public education, quality healthcare for all Virginian's and support legislation to make our neighborhoods and communities safer, it benefits all Virginians.
Each day I wake up, I do so in prayer and meditation. I know my victory did not happen because of me alone. Quite the contrary, it was because of the voters, supporters and my incredible core campaign team that worked tirelessly to knock on doors, made phone calls, hosted meet & greets, coordinated schedules, or contributed small and large to help my campaign. So many people asked me, "Delegate, how can I help? Just say the word, and I got you!" Well, many folks were asked to volunteer their time or donate to my campaign, and it all made a difference. And now, it is up to me to continue the hard work to make a difference in your lives, and this I promise. I am honored and humbled to serve you, and I do not take for granted this awesome responsibility to make a difference in the lives of great Virginians. Even for those who chose not to cast your vote for me, I believe in one Virginia and will work hard to earn your vote in the future. So, I have now transitioned from a campaign mode to full steam ahead with the demands of serving in the VA General Assembly.
In conclusion, thank you for entrusting your invaluable vote to me, and I will continue to uphold our democratic values and work hard every day to improve the communities in the 70th District and throughout the Commonwealth.
I wish you well and lots of fun this summer!
Delores L. McQuinn
Delegate for 70th District
