Now that the dust has settled after the election and the cleanup is underway, it is time to both acknowledge and extend a wholehearted thanks to my field director, Nicholas Poche. Although I am certainly happy that I have no reason to run for office this coming year, I will miss Nick tremendously. Every I was dotted and T was crossed with him. No surprises, no emergencies and no drama in the camp and he never got it wrong. I was thankful many days during the campaign that I put my faith in you and brought you on board to run the show. Thank you, Nick! After hearing the story of Bill Hildebrand and how he started out, I have no doubt your life could take a very similar path if you so choose.
