Happiest holiday wishes to All!

Dearest friends:

Happy Passover and a very Happy Easter!

I would like to take this opportunity to formally thank everyone who helped on my campaign this election cycle and during the previous two elections. Whether you lent support by voting, telling your friends, knocking on doors, making phone calls, hosting an event, tweeting, facebooking, lending an ear, planting signs, working Election Day, emailing, showing up or helped in any other myriad of ways, THANK YOU!

As you can see by all of the activities, I could not have won this race without all of you. I am truly grateful and humbled by this opportunity to serve my community and will never forget that I could not have done it without you and that I owe all of you a debt of doing my best to do justice everyday.

After Passover I will go back to my practice with Franklin Law Group in Northfield and with North Shore LAW. I will continue to practice until the November general election. I will be on the ballot as the democratic nominee for the Preston vacancy. I do not have a republican opponent. Nevertheless, we will remind everyone to vote again!

After the general election, I will likely be sworn in as a judge in December. Then, from what I understand, I will go to judge school. I then will be placed in a courtroom, most likely in traffic court at the Daley Center.

We will keep you posted on the general election and the swearing in.

My sincerest wishes for a wonderful Passover and Easter and my humblest Thank you for your help and support!

Sincerely,

Abbey
