Dear friends,

We were hoping this outcome would be different, but today the vast majority of mailed-in ballots in our race were counted.  I am sad to report to you that the outcome was still the same.

We came up just a bit short and our journey has officially ended.

As I said before, I am enormously proud of you and everything you did for our campaign to steer Bolingbrook in a new direction.  Although I believe that day will come, it won’t happen as swiftly as we all hoped.

I cannot thank you enough for believing in me.  Your faith has inspired me and our community in unfathomable ways.

Although the next steps are unclear, I can promise that you will hear from me again.  I believe strongly we have more work to do so that our community is more welcoming, warm, and uplifting to all who live here.

In Solidarity,

Jackie Traynere
