Codey SOS - About Acting Governor Codey
But I can't do it alone. I need your help -- from both sides of the aisles and all branches of government. I don't pretend to have all the answers and I don't intend to sugarcoat the challenges. You know me -- I'm not afraid to ask for help from anyone who has a good idea. I'm not afraid to seek the truth, even if it isn't pretty.
I am a product of this legislature, and I am proud to call you my colleagues. To succeed, this body must light the way for the citizens of our state ....Democrats and Republicans alike -- all those interested in the future of our state.
Come join this effort with your energy and with your ideas. The friction and spark ... that comes with the forging of ideas ... should be used to ignite a torch ... that can bind us together ... and guide us along the way.
I draw strength from your collective wisdom and I pray that I can use my experience for the greater good. If we are willing to work together and be sensible in what we can achieve ... then together we can make real and meaningful progress for the State we all love.
