” Feeling gratitude and not expressing it, is like wrapping a present and not giving it, ” William Arthur Ward
I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the voters of the Great County of Kisumu for electing me as your governor. I am honored and humbled that you have placed your trust in me.
It has been so encouraging to meet so many new people. During my campaign travels, I met not only new residents in Kisumu but also new and committed team that saw me through this journey.
Although I enjoyed representing you as your Senator in the past five years I know I will find many new friends in this county.
The support I felt on election day was incredible and I owe it to you.
With your trust, I will work tirelessly on your behalf to help address challenges, and to secure lasting and meaningful improvements to your quality of life.
Again, I thank this team that worked tirelessly day and night for this victory both the Nairobi and Kisumu secretariat led by my campaign manager Nerry Achar, Achie Ojany Alai, Nicholas Migot, Wycliffe Miyungi not forgetting my official campaign photographer Omondi Lennox who was omnipresent in all my functions. I can’t mention all names but feel appreciated for the support you all gave me. Focus is now on Raila Odinga presidency. There is work to be done lets do it.
I very much look forward to serving Kisumu as your Governor.
