To the editor:

I hope you will join me in thanking all of the candidates for office who offered their service to the citizenry. An involved citizenry is a requirement for our system of government to work. So, as we think of the winners, please also say a word of thanks for those whose election efforts came up short, with this short quote (edited to be more gender inclusive) from Theodore Roosevelt’s “Citizenship in the Republic.”
