Carroll candidate thanks supporters

-A A +A

I would like to personally thank everyone who supported me in my campaign for the Pipers Gap seat on the Carroll County Board of Supervisors, as well as [the incumbent] Dr. Littrell for a clean race.
Even though I lost by percentage, I did not lose by the number of votes I received, the relationships I established and the tremendous experience I gained from running for office.
Regardless of whether the candidates we supported won, we all need to hold responsible the decisions the upcoming boards will make in their attempts to move our county forward.
Even though a vote was cast, citizens should not hold back from voicing their ideas, suggestions and concerns to our elected officials, because they are solely responsible for our rights, opportunities and the way of life we cherish in Carroll County.
All I have to say now is that in two or four more years, the name “Gerald R. Goad” will hopefully be on the ballot again for a county office and an incumbent might have a challenge which they will never forget.
Gerald R. Goad
