Hodge congratulates Miller on re-election as District 3 Supe

“We are excited for everything we’ve accomplished this year!

“I am honored to have had your support and enthusiasm throughout this entire race and I am honored to have been your candidate. We are proud of the race we ran. We ran with integrity and honesty. We focused on our optimism for this community. It was a tight race right down to the finish.

“This afternoon, I called Dan Miller to congratulate him on his re-election.  We learned today that with likely fewer than 200 votes left to tally in our district, 181 votes separated the two campaigns.  This was a hard-fought race and we should all be proud of what we accomplished.

“I told Dan, and I meant it, that I will continue to fight for our community and that I will continue to work for Nevada County in whatever capacity I can find. This is my home. You are my family. We are all in this together.

“When people are engaged, when people learn about the issues facing their community and study the candidates, when people show up to the polls, there is no such thing as defeat in our democracy. We changed the conversation. We registered voters.  We made sure that all the candidates showed up for this community. We came together as a progressive community, and engaged many first-time volunteers in our cause.

“Let’s continue our enthusiasm and our work to ensure that we are truly represented in our local government. It is my hope that you will join me in continuing our efforts to enact positive change and electing good candidates in November.

“Be sure to mark your calendars for our Volunteer Appreciation Party on Thursday, June 28th at 5:30pm @ Hilary’s house! We are excited to announce that this event will be catered by Emily’s Catering.

“Thank you for all you have done, and continue to do for the cause! “

  1. Congratulations to Hilary for running an inspiring (rather than “mudslinging”) campaign, raising the bar for local elections (f0r a change). And congratulations to Dan for winning re-election to the BOS, capping a decades-long tenure of local public service!

  2. I’m sorry Hilary did not win but she put up a great campaign with class and dignity just like she did in congratulating her opponent
