Special thanks goes to my committee members, in particular Dianne Canney, Tom Krumenecker, Mary Saylor, Colin Smith, Chris Czop and municipal leader Don Madison, for their unwavering support and for standing out in the rain all day for me.
Special thanks to my critical support network, including my employer, my 1180 WFYL Live and Local co-host, Barry Papiernik, the great PaWatercooler contributors Bill Shaw (and Scraps!)and Janice Kearney, Jim Saring and Bo Donovan and the Oaks Neighboorhood Association.
Extra special thanks to my family: my girls Jodi Vermuth and Colleen Emmons, my son-in-law Brett Vermuth, our neighbor Alyssa Culver, my sister Chrissy Hindle, brother Tom Ferlick and friends Ned Dougherty, Gil Zimmerman, Anna Mie Czop, Anne Biddle, Chuck Lowry, Walt Fedak, Chuck Stoll and Ruth Wanamaker, who all stood in the rain yesterday.
And finally, my thanks and undying love for my die hard campaigners: my daughter Dana and especially my husband Gene, who is my rock, my biggest cheerleader and the guy who kept me going when I was dead on my feet.
With such a solid support network, I couldn't lose. Thank you one and all. On to November!
