In an email to me Anne says,
Re: Good Luck!
Today 2:17 PM
Thank you. I honestly did not view my candidacy as you mentioned because truth is in all things I am more focused on doing what I need to do that is good, honest and true regardless of how it may make me appear to others. So with that being said I am proud of me for never giving up on the very values and essence of my being a mother, candidate and human being. I am proud of you too. Although you have had your own unfortunate experiences that are similar to mine that has caused you to want to pursue betterment I am proud of your ability to do so in the style that you have because you truly demonstrate courage, hard work , and willingness to talk to people in the community that are experiencing difficult issues you will have to address yet they way a citizen delivers the information to you may not be at a more distressed level. I know I have run on sentences and this is an example of what I mean. I hope your exposure to me makes you a better politician lol because so many politicians simply don’t really want to understand some issues they address by the people that are experiencing because it can be very tiring, stressful and overwhelming for them. In other words, I believe people like you and I make the best candidates for facing the issues that we both want to address just because of our first hand knowledge and experience and so that means you and I have picked up many transferable experiences that are needed to do that job successfully in office. I know I have PTSD although nobody has diagnosed me and it is worse every year because my heart feels like it is literally dying and your the first human I have typed this on the internet too because I am aware it could be used negatively against me by anyone wanting to attack me cherry pick style. It is my heart desire to make it better and breaks my heart that I have been blocked. I can honestly say that a few men such as you and Dean Tong that have been courageous enough to say they believe in me are one reason I believe I have survived as long as I have and as strong as I have been able to be so I wish somehow everyone could have something or someone in place to at least assist them through what is most heart and brain shattering for all women, men and children in our community and everyone is impacted regardless of any actions that cps dshs and family law makes. I just wish everyone could just be more friendly in their approach to wanting to achieve goals. I understand when you hung up on me that you were frustrated and I am sorry. I do not wish harm to anyone. But I am proud of you and me in the sense that although that happened the desire to come together for sake of greater good was greater and allowed us to do so and I think that is really all everyone needs, the honest and good valid attempt to do everything we can , doing good unto all for all. God Bless you and your wife on your new life that will soon be if not this year then next year because I strongly feel in my heart that the public will see no other politician is more deserving to take a seat in office than you. Your endless dedication to our community and state is admirable and anyone that takes a stand to serve our state should be recognized as someone worthy. Thank you Bill!
