Coomer congratulates Bottom

Gone are the signs and our landscape is returned to her natural beauty; the election is now a week past and Boyle County is the winner. Political competition is healthy, as this is what keeps our elected officials working hard to serve us as best possible. This was a historic election for Boyle County. The ballot was full on both sides with good and qualified candidates. The winners chosen will do a great job in moving our county forward.

For me personally, it was an honor to run and I am truly humbled by the support that I was shown by so many too numerous to mention here. It has been a growth experience that has opened my eyes to how fortunate that I am; it has taught me a few lessons about myself; I have made some great new friends. Overall, I have become a better person from the experience. I will continue my career in real estate and as an auctioneer and will continue to be interested and involved in the betterment our community.

To my opponent, Trille Bottom, I congratulate you on your victory. I appreciate that you ran a gracious and positive campaign; to the victor go the spoils. I appreciate your commitment to public service and know that you will continue to strive to serve us all well. I wish you and your deputies at the Boyle County Clerk’s office nothing but the best.

Thank you to all that ran and all who turned out to make their voice heard. This is what makes America great!
