Suspending My Campaign
To My Wonderful Supporters:
First and foremost, thank you for your support, time, and engagement for my second run for House District 19. It is with a heavy heart that I write this message to you today. I am suspending my campaign and exiting the race for HD19.
Due to an unforeseeable personal health matter, I am no longer able to continue my run for this seat.
You have been a major source of inspiration and I thank you all for your willingness to engage and work with my campaign to get it where it is. Time and again I called upon you for support. Together we knocked on hundreds of doors, made call after call reminding people to vote, and to encourage them to vote for me. Thank you all so much for the trust you placed in me. It has meant the world.
I encourage you to vote – vote for a candidate you believe in and who will represent your needs in the state legislature.
Some of you may be worried about my work on the council. Don’t worry – I plan to finish my term in December.
While I am saddened that I will not be able to represent you at the State Capitol, I am grateful for the friendships and relationships I have built over the past four years.
Thank you once again for going on this journey with me.
Jackie Leung, Salem City Councilor
