"You're at that critical point.  Make that last push."
Six years ago, when my wife Kim campaigned successfully to become Covington's Mayor, we ordered take-out Chinese food about a week before the election.  After dinner, we were amazed when her fortune cookie offered up this advice:  "You're at that critical point.  Make that last push."  She was pushing hard already, but it was an omen and an encouragement to keep executing the plan.

With 10 days to go before this year's City Council election, this is my critical point.  And, the push is on.  I don't know if I'll order Chinese food or not, but I don't need a fortune cookie to tell me to keep working hard.  I have all the inspiration I need just talking with supporters who believe in our campaign and are working just as hard as I am to win the day and realize the vision.

It's a team sport, and I appreciate every one of you.  Let's keep working, team.  If you haven't voted yet, vote.  If you have voted, get your friends and neighbors to the polls.  If someone's undecided, call me and let me talk to them.  Show them our video or hand them my bio and platform.

The goal line is in sight, let's push it over the line.

Had an exciting Sunday afternoon as I traveled through neighborhoods leaving Maurice Carter Literature, talking with old friends and new friends realizing how important this election is for the many citizens of Covington. We need new business leaders to move us to the next stage of growth for Covington and jointly with Newton County.
