Welcome to Greg Rodriguez for 42nd State Assembly

I just placed a call to my opponent Chad Mayes congratulating him on his success in Tuesday's election. As I told him, we should both be proud of the campaign we had in the 42nd District. It was civil and based on issues. It was a far cry from the national debacle we witnessed this past year and a half.

Riverside County is still counting ballots (of course) but we will not be able to overcome the deficit. While we gave this race our all, Democrats just did not show up to vote. It is a sad commentary on our democracy and I just hope that as time goes by voters will understand the importance of participating in the world's most cherished institution.

I want to thank you all for your encouragement and support this past 18 months. You were there for me emotionally, physically and financially and I can't begin to express the amount of gratitude I feel.

While I suffered a defeat this past week, I will remain focused on making our world a better place. That will not include seeking office in the future, but finding some outlet to work on the issues we talked about during the campaign. My passion did not end on Tuesday and I know yours did not either.

Thank you all once again and here is to a brighter tomorrow.

Greg
