Smith thanks Atmore supporters
I would like to take this opportunity to thank, from the bottom of my heart, the people who voted for and supported me in the primary election. I am truly gratified that the people who supported me have the confidence in me to represent District 4. My family has also been a tremendous help and I could not have achieved this without them.
I owe a thank you not only to my supporters, but to everyone who turned out in support of all four candidates. The voter’s taking the time to come out in support of the candidates make all of our efforts well worthwhile.
During my campaign I was able to get reacquainted with friends I have not seen in a long time. I was also able to get acquainted with people whom I’ve never had the opportunity to meet before. Whether they supported me or not, everyone treated me very cordial and I greatly appreciate that.
In closing, I would like to thank Mr. William Brown for the wholesome race he conducted. I have the utmost respect for him and his family and the way they handled their campaign. Thank you again for your support and may God bless all of you.
