At this holiday season, I know of no one who has greater cause to give thanks than I do after a long, hard-fought campaign for circuit court judge. While my spiritual thanks will be personal, please allow me to give loud and public thanks to my supporters, contributors, volunteers, and family, all leading to the biggest thanks of all — the voters of St. Mary’s County. Those of us who have worked week in and week out since early this year, appreciate the confidence you place with your vote.

Although there was some strong sentiment to put “Thank You” stickers on our signs, nine months of looking at campaign signs is long enough. We concluded it was more important to take down the signs, unify the community, and offer our thanks through the media.

While others will examine and parse the election results, I was elected on Nov. 6 to go to work and be a judge for everybody. I have and I will continue to do so. Please know that I do so with many thanks from the bottom of a grateful heart.

May the joy of the holiday season be yours and your families’. And may 2013 be prosperous and healthy for all of us in St. Mary’s County.

Again, thank you very much for your kindness, your support, your vote, and your very good wishes. Please accept mine in return.

David W. Densford, Leonardtown
