Letter from state Sen. Tom Colapietro to all of Tuesday's candidates:
As always I commend all those who put themselves on the line for their community. They all worked hard and it was refreshing to see the candidates hold a civil campaign.
They are all winners Democrat, Republican and unaffiliated as well.
At times it is a difficult task to be an elected official and it took a lot of courage by all who ran.
Congratulations to all , it makes one proud to have so many good candidates. Please don't give up the ship, the community needs you!
Senator Tom Colapietro
