Many Thanks to everyone who volunteered or gave me a few moments of their time during my campaign for the Maine Senate. While the outcome is disappointing, I will never be disappointed in the 8,134 votes that I received from across Waldo County. I am proud of the campaign and what we accomplished during the past 11 months. My volunteers and I worked tirelessly to bring a respectful and meaningful message to the voters. For that we can say, job well done!
My focus has been and will continue to be on the people of Waldo County. This is my longtime home and a place that I love.
In the days ahead, I plan to spend time with family and reconnect with my day to day life. I will continue to volunteer with the many organizations that I support, including, the Waldo County YMCA, Belfast Rotary Club. Belfast SCORE and Maine Association of Nonprofits. More of my time will be devoted to economic and nonprofit consulting work through my business, Giles Consulting. In this way, I will continue to find ways to better people's lives through economic and philanthropic support.
In closing, I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving and Holiday Season ahead. This is a time of year that brings family and friends together. I hope you have time to be with those most important to you.
In 2019, I may not be singing "Vote Jayne for Maine" - but I will always, truly be Jayne for Maine!
Thank you again.
