I would like to take this opportunity to thank the voters of Mercer County Board District 4 in my bid for county board.

Even though I was not elected, it was very enjoyable campaigning and meeting old and new friends in New Boston, Eliza, Millersburg, Duncan, and Perryton Townships.

I am very thankful that Fred Rooth was able to retain his seat and wish the best of luck to Dan Schroeder in what will no doubt be a thankless, frustrating, and difficult job.

I am also thankful that only 40 percent of my signage disappeared just before the election. I'm going to blame high winds. I tried my best to remove all my signs before sunset on Nov. 7th. If anyone finds one I missed, please give me a call as I paid for them myself.

Joe Vann,
New Boston
