All Class: Farewell Message From Kansas 3rd District Congressman Kevin Yoder
Possibly the finest writing during this election cycle that strikes a perfect conciliatory tone, hope for the future and reveals a true Statesman.
Kansas 3rd District Congressman: Kevin Yoder: From the bottom of my heart
I want you to know how thankful I am to have been your voice all of these years.
Last night, we may not have gotten the result that we wanted or that we hoped for.
But remember - this seat in Congress does not belong to any one man or woman. It belongs to the people of the Third District of Kansas.
I want to congratulate my opponent Ms. Davids on becoming the next United States Congresswoman from the Third District to serve the people of Kansas.
I wish her good luck, and she needs our prayers and support because we need this country to unify and get things done for the American people.
I loved this job and each and every day, I got up and gave my heart and soul to make sure I was a strong leader for this community
There will be prognosticators who will look back on my record and they will say that if I cast a vote differently or if I stood up every day and fought the President, that I might have won this race.
Even if you looked me in the eye and you told me it would change last night's outcome, I would not change one thing.
That's because America and our future mean more to me than anything else. And standing up for what you believe in is more important that any election.
Thank you to all of the Yoder Voters out there who stood by us all of these years. You put your faith in me, and I hope that I've never let you down.
It has been the honor of my lifetime to represent this state, the constituents of the Third District in the United States House of Representatives.
I've always strived to represent you honorably and faithfully and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the chance to be your voice in Congress.
God bless you all, and may God continue to bless these United States of America.
