I wish I could be there tonight with all yall at the party, but I'm way down here in Mississippi. This is one celebration I would love to attend. First, Dr Marchman and now this tonight. It is wonderful.

It has been a long hard fight, but we have taken back our county.
For some it was too late, like ginga and pipps, their property destroyed. But they fought on for others. Such noble and good people came together. Mr Bosh has taken a beating in the papers, just like Steve Brown, and Barlow. But they never backed down. They are all our true fighters and we are the winners for having such good people to lead us. Thank you all.
