Thank you, votersThe election did not turn out the way we had hoped, but I want to take this moment to thank you all for your support and encouragement over the course of the primary.
There are so many people to thank especially Honourables Nathan Mafabi Nandala, Allan Sewanyana, Attan Okia, Sewungu, Masaba Karim, Agnes Nandutu etc.
To my co-chairs and all of you who were on my steering committee, those of you who helped me at the polls, let me put signs on your property, helped with the various events and especially those who worked so hard every day, you have my heartfelt thanks.
My message of small government and low spending that leads to low taxes, while not forgetting those most vulnerable in our society, was well-received in many places. I feel confident the majority of voters agree with the fact that government cannot grow faster than the people’s ability to pay for it.
