And Facebook, Summersgill quickly and graciously congratulated his opponent, writing, “Congratulations Frank McGehee I enjoyed the campaign and wish you (and our town) the best.”
On Wednesday, McGehee offered this statement:
“Thank you fellow Maplewoodians for your support! I look forward to working with you and with fellow Township Committee members. Together we will help make this great community continue to thrive. Special thank you to my family, particularly my wife and daughter, for their love and support. A big thank you to my campaign team for their tireless energy, the MDC, other civic leaders and our volunteers for their time and commitment. Finally, congratulations and best wishes to Mike Summersgill for running a hard fought and respectable campaign.”
