Dear friend,

It is clear from the latest results that our campaign will prevail when the final tally of votes is completed.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I am profoundly humbled and honored to have received your support. We accomplished something many thought was impossible, and we did it because of you.

From the beginning, I made it clear that this race was about the people of the Valley, their issues and their right to have a chance at achieving the American dream. Our message prevailed, and our work is only just beginning.

We won together, and it is my hope that we continue to work together to provide our communities with good paying jobs, access to healthcare, clean air, water infrastructure, and quality education.

I will work towards these goals every single day in office. This victory is just the first step in ensuring a better life for everyone in the Central Valley.

With gratitude,

Melissa Hurtado
