Mayor-elect Bill Foster thanks supporters



Mayor-elect Bill Foster thanked his supporters in an e-mail today:

To the entire Foster Family:

Wow. It seems like only yesterday we were all at Ferg’s celebrating an awesome victory. Since November 3, I have become reacquainted with Wendy and the kids, spent numerous hours meeting with city staff, and have actually resumed the practice of law (if only for a few more weeks). I have been remise, however, in my lack of contact with you, the family, and I sincerely apologize.

Over the past ten months, I alone accomplished nothing (other than losing 25 pounds, and I will take all the credit for that). However, we, together, achieved something great for the City of St. Petersburg, and I am so truly humbled and honored to have had you all in my life over these past months. I am grateful to all of you who supported me with your time, talent, finances, and prayers, and I will not let you down. None of this was possible without you all playing a role, and trust me - I know it. Please keep us all in your prayers, and remember your City and our Veterans in the process.

Thank you all once again with all of my heart.
