Gracious in Defeat


Thursday, November 15, 2012

As I write this, I’m in Grand Junction, Colorado, making my way back East to resume my post on Capitol Hill. I just wanted to say that it was a true pleasure working with the Independent . I know how much you guys put into this election (especially with the debate at UCSB) and I appreciated all your hard work and effort. [Editor-in-Chief] Marianne Partridge is a one-of-a-kind personality and watching her and Abel engage in a truly civil discourse made me think how entertaining it would be if the two of them were on a cable news show together. I also wanted to say that Chris Meagher was a true professional – certainly the Independent’s all-star. No question he has a bright future ahead of him, and it would not shock me to cross-paths with him someday in Washington.

This posting was amended on November 15 to correct the letter-writer’s job description. We apologize for the error.

Kurt Bardella was congressional candidate Abel Maldonado's communications director for the November 2012 elections.
