After such a stressful election that the whole world watched, I want to say thank you to all the volunteers that worked polls and counted the votes. You did a phenomenal job during an exceptionally difficult and strange time. You had to deal with COVID exposures. You had to deal with people being rude. You had to deal with protestors that accused you of cheating, stealing, and any number of other crimes. And once in a while, as people chanted and protested outside the buildings where you worked you had to stay focused on the job at hand and not worry about how you would get out to your car at the end of your shift or if someone was writing down your license plate with the intention of doing you harm later if they did not get the result they wanted.
You are patriots!
You are unsung heroes!
You are amazing!
And everyone in this country owes you a debt of gratitude for supporting the election process.
I thank you with all my heart.
