And in the End...

Nine months of work…hundreds of volunteers…a core group of people who gave up every Saturday plus a few nights a week, too…families who were patient and understanding…vacations that were postponed...job searches put on hold…all of this led to the wonderful victory we enjoyed last week.

We did this…we saved our library.

We are moms and dads, sisters and brothers, children, grandparents.

We are Republicans, Democrats, Independents, conservatives and liberals…but you know what? Party labels don’t matter…we proved that. We took the politics out of our library and told those who seek to only view it through that lens that we’re watching very carefully.

We changed the conversation in Troy. We became a voice for people looking for honestly, integrity, and TRUTH.

We are all of us. We are Troy.

And what is Troy? A top-rated city with top-rated services, schools and safety.

Troy is fiscally responsible.

Troy is a community in which we want to raise our families, and a community to which we want people and businesses to move.

Saving our library was the first step. The work is not done. Now we look toward November and the election of a new council. It is vital that we elect those who will continue to keep Troy the solid city it is and always has been and say no to those who seek only to forward personal political agendas that serve narrow-minded political ideologies. We must continue the conversation we started nine months ago. If you wish to become part of this revolution to Save Troy, please join us by going to www.savetroy.org and send an e-mail. We’ll be in touch.

Finally, I want to end with thanks. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to each and every one of you that came with us on the road to victory. We made people literally around the world stand up and take notice, but more importantly we helped every resident and business of this city by restoring the spirit of Troy.
