Editor's Note: The following statement was issued by the Mark Forest campaign this morning. It is published verbatim, as submitted:
The results came in very late last night in the campaign for county commissioner. Unfortunately, things did not go as we had hoped. Forest extends his congratulations to the winners and those that helped on his campaign.
“I would like to congratulate Mary Pat Flynn on her reelection and Ron Beaty on his victory. Let me also congratulate Linda Bond on her campaign as well.
I am proud of the race we ran. We focused on the important issues facing the county - the need to stabilize its finances and the need to protect Cape Cod's water resources. I want to thank everyone who voted for me, all my supporters, and my dedicated campaign team. I am proud of all the work they did and extend my warmest and deepest thanks.”
