Following the release of the final vote figures, Rye City Councilwoman and Westchester County Legislator candidate Suzanna Keith congratulated her opponent Judy Myers on the outcome and thanked voters for their support.
She promised to remain engaged on the issues voters brought to her attention during the course of the campaign. She also pledged to remain a strong advocate for District 7’s taxpayers.
“I congratulate Judy Myers on her win,” Keith stated. “I wish her well in carrying out her responsibilities of office.”
Turning to the election, Keith thanked the voters who came out to support her. She called the election “a big victory for democracy.”
“I look forward to continuing my work on the Rye City Council—I will work even harder than I did before to show my commitment to the issues I know are important to all of you. I also want to thank all those who came out in support of my campaign,” Keith added. “While the end result of our election did not go our way, we still scored a big victory for democracy. We listened to the residents who spoke loudly and clearly about our County’s tax burden and I will continue the effort to make our County more affordable.”
Finally, Keith thanked her family friends and campaign volunteers.
“Without the loyal support of all these people, and especially, of my family, this campaign would never have been possible,” Keith said. “I owe them an enormous debt of thanks. Andrew, Grant, JP, and Kiki were the best partners and supporters I could ever have had.”
