Alderman-elect Anita Mullane issued a statement to the press this morning following her determined victory in the 2nd Ward alderman's race.

After absentee ballots were counted this morning, giving her a 587-581 edge in the race, Mullane pulled a letter out and handed it to the press, saying she had prepared two letters. The one she distributed —written in case of victory — follows below in its entirety.
I am gratified to know that the citizens of the Second Ward have spoken, and chosen me to represent them. I want to assure all of them that I intend to fight for the return of our wonderful city to financial stability.

I owe thanks to so many people, my loving husband Dan, our wonderful children and my whole family, who could not have been more supportive and inspiring. My friends — they know who they are — I would not be here without their selfless dedication.

I want to thank the many citizens of my ward that I met face-to-face while campaigning. Regardless of political affiliation, I was always greeted with warmth and respect. I would like to think I've made a number of new friends.

I ran for office to help turn our city in a positive direction — not to wage a political vendetta. I am looking forward to meeting with Mayor McCaffrey as soon as possible, and I hope this marks the beginning of a cordial and productive partnership.

I urge my fellow Second Ward residents to contact me with their ideas and concerns. I am committed to better government, more transparent government, and a brighter future for the city we all love.

— Anita Mullane
