To My Supporters,

We've reached the end of the race and the place where we take stock of what we've accomplished. I entered the race with the sole intention of bringing a new perspective on how best to guide Ann Arbor's future. I truly believed in the message and the policy ideas you, my supporters, helped me promote to our fellow Ann Arborites. Our city is a better place for having brought fresh ideas to the discussion of where we would like to go as a city and how we can best get there.

From the very beginning of this race, I was overwhelmed and touched by the willingness of many others to help promote my ideas more widely, even at the expense of valuable personal time. From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank everyone who supported me, in small ways and large. Your awareness and activism is critical to our future and a shining example to the young people who are such a significant part of Ann Arbor.

Of course we would like to have won—that was the goal—but it is worth all the sacrifices simply to be a critical part of the democratic process. A healthy democracy is one that brings more voices to the public sphere, and I'm pleased to have been able to do this in my run for mayor of Ann Arbor. If we are true to ourselves and our purpose is noble and we fight the good fight, we cannot truly lose. On the journey we have changed ourselves and our community for the better.

Warmest Regards,
      Sally Petersen

I am running for Mayor because I believe we can improve the level of city services for all residents through responsible growth while preserving the unique heritage and heart of Ann Arbor.

Our next Mayor needs to be creative and strategic in her approach to develop prudent economic policy, engage collaboratively with the University of Michigan and be relentless in civic engagement.

Today, we need a leader with full time energy and 24/7 commitment; someone with the ability to stay true to the values and aspirations of the community she serves. Someone with a fresh voice and vision willing to chart a new course for Ann Arbor.
