Friends and Supporters:
The voters in Senate District 22 (Clive, Waukee, West Des Moines & Windsor Heights) have made their choice in the Special Election. Regretfully we came up short. I have several thoughts about the campaign I’d like to share with each of you.
I want to thank my family who have, for nearly two years, allowed me to campaign on a full time basis. My wife, Shondalette, sons Khalil and Solomon have taken on huge responsibilities to keep our family moving forward. Thank you for giving me permission to serve others and for your very special efforts.
Thank you to my team and to the many volunteers who stepped up. It was a long campaign; they never wavered in their support and encouragement.
To those of you who voted for me. Thank you for respecting a new type of Democrat who understands a broad range of issues from business to social. I believe we engaged the voters and raised the bar when it comes to our party and our voice.
And, finally, I am most proud of the fact that during these past 20 months our campaign never, not once, went negative. This has always been a campaign driven by thought leadership, devotion to understanding that “the flattest pancake has two sides” and mutual respect.
I wish Senator-Elect Charles Schneider the very best as he takes this very important role as a representative of all the people.
Now it is time to work on those things you have told me are important to you and your families. I have a deep desire to stay involved in the process and continue to help move Iowa forward.
May God richly bless each and every one of you.
Why Desmund? You’ve heard from me many times. Now let’s hear from others:
Thank you all for your work and support. This campaign is now heading into the final weeks. The election is on December 11. If you have NOT yet received your Vote by Mail request you can send me an email or give us a phone call (822-1266) and we’ll make sure you’re in. The form takes just a minute and we even…deliver.
On behalf of the entire…Continue
