It is with sincerest apologies that I must step away from actively campaigning this election cycle.
I have appreciated all of the support, encouragement, and donations along the way and hope to continue the relationships that I have made further.
I can only hope that District 62 will be led in Albany by a strong, constitutional and honest servant this coming year.
Any money left in my campaign account will be donated to a local charity of majority vote on my Facebook page.
Any events I was to attend will be cancelled and not rescheduled.
I have made personal decisions that have ultimately resulted in the necessity of my stepping down from the campaign.
I participated in an extramarital affair beginning in August of this year. It was an excuse for an escape from an already declining marriage. I cannot regret the decisions I have made, but I can admit to being happier presently than before.
It is for my ex husband, my children, my family and friends that I must publicly admit to my actions as I believe honesty and integrity are of utmost importance in life.
I hope that all I have disappointed will understand that I am only human and imperfect. I will be available for public comment and want to make available my cell phone number so that any constituent that may want to speak with me has that ability.
