Leslie's Letter to Supporters
Thank you all! It was a long, hard fought campaign, but I am so proud to have been elected to Pawnee's City Council.
First, I'd like to salute all of the other candidates. Pawnee is better for the election it just experienced, and I'm proud to now represent all of you in government.
Next, I wanted to thank all of you supporters for your tireless work. I couldn't have done this without you. In addition to my close friends, campaign supporters, and boyfriend/manager - all of whom I have thanked repeatedly and will continue to thank for as long as I draw breath - I'd like to single out three special people:
Janice Spriggit, my 93-year-old neighbor, whose weekly baskets of cookies kept me going through many late nights.
Constance Clarkenwell - all of seven years old - for my favorite campaign donation. Your 50 cents of allowance money was an inspiration, and it went to good use. (And it's tax deductible!)
Beyonce Knowles - your music is perfect for thinking, getting psyched up, and make-out sessions. The Big Three. I love you and I really feel like we should be friends.
Now I begin my time in City Council, and I will fulfill my promises to you all:
I will work tirelessly to improve Pawnee.
I will end the raccoon epidemic once and for all.
I will pass, with immediacy, stronger anti-Eagleton legislation.
I will change the way people think about politics.
And I will take names and kick butt doing it.
City Councilwoman Leslie Knope
