My oldest daughter Jessica is now a Junior at Utah State, Sarah is 6'3" and will be in 9th Grade next year, and Cathy and I will celebrate our 23rd year of marriage later this year. Our 16 year commitment to Public Service has brought about some great experiences and I wouldn't trade them for anything. It's been tough, discouraging at times, but we've worked our way through a variety of challenges. Our family, in particular Sarah, has never known anything else, and somewhere, I hope that I might find an opportunity for public service. However if this January brings nothing else, I will look back with great fondness for the wonderful opportunity afforded us as a family. While I signed the form Friday to close my election committee, it was truly a moment looking back with great reflection. I imagine it is the first of many "last experiences" this year.
