  1. I would like to thank everyone associated with our election in Piedmont for their thoughtfulness and civility and spirit of fair play. Piedmont citizens are superb roll models for their children of behaviour that could well be emulated at a national level:No swearing, no name calling, no ridiculing, no bullying, no caustic slurs. I feel gratitude for the people I was able to meet and the ideas I heard.
    Sunny Bostrom-Fleming
