To the citizens of Hercules:
I recognize and respect that our nation was founded on the principle that it is the right of the People to either alter or abolish and institute new Government when appropriate.
I also recognize that the previous city council, of which I was a member, has lost the public trust. I pledge to work hard with your new city council to do whatever is necessary to right the ship.
It has been my honor and privilege to serve you, and I dedicate the remainder of my term, whether it be years or months, to restoring your trust in both me and your city council.
Very truly yours,
