Tim Ritzert thanks Lewes voters
After a protracted campaign season, I would like to express a heartfelt thanks to the citizens of Lewes who participated in the recent city council election.
The level of participation and interest in this year’s election is a clear indication that citizens are committed to Lewes and its future. The results also send a strong message that the community is not fearful of change, and that in fact, “business as usual” will not figure into the “change” the community expects from the incoming council. With the community’s continued support I am committed to making those changes occur. I want to take this opportunity to also thank the volunteer members of the Lewes Board of Elections, as well as Lewes City Manager Ann Marie Townshend and the city staff. City staff worked diligently processing a record number of new voter registrations, requests for and issuances of absentee ballots, and then kept track of completed ballots upon receipt until the board counted all 739 absentee ballots. Job well done, indeed, by everyone involved.
Thank you Lewes.
