Fort Bend County, 

Thanks4giving me the opportunity to represent you as your 2022 Midterm Elections Democratic Candidate for Fort Bend County Clerk. Your unconditional support, prayers, and votes deeply humble me.

I want to give special thanks to my family, and every member of Team Toni V. Finding the words to express my gratitude for your support and belief in my candidacy is difficult; I would never have made it without you. While this is not the outcome for which we worked so hard, I am proud of the positive campaign we ran.

Thank you to every person who supported me in this campaign. Many of you made financial donations, welcomed me into your home for campaign events, offered encouragement, knocked on doors, sent text messages, or put out yard signs. There is a special place in my heart for each of you. It has been a blessing to experience your commitment to my mission for a New Vision, New Direction, and New Leadership.

Congratulations to the Democratic Party candidates who won. Job well done!

I also congratulate Laura Richard on her victory as Fort Bend County Clerk. I wish her and her team much success.

To the democratic candidates who fell short in numbers (including myself), WE must Trust and Believe that this Setback is a Setup for a greater Comeback. Better Days are Coming!

The campaign may be over, but I am excited about what God has planned for me next. 

Happy Holidays!
