It is with warm heartfelt gratitude that I say thank you from the bottom of my heart for your encouragement, your strength and your faith in me!

It’s hard to believe that just a few months ago, I decided to run for Lake County State’s Attorney. 

I am so touched by the outpouring of volunteers and donors who have joined our team to fight for a safer Lake County. I am proud to say I’m filing my petitions to get on the ballot Monday, Nov. 27 with almost three times the required amount. I couldn’t have done it without you!

I have learned building something like this is a team sport. We win as a team, we lose as a team, and I’m just so grateful to have you on my team.

I am so grateful for the leaders in our community who work every day to keep us safe. To all the men and women serving in law enforcement, many of whom are working on Thanksgiving; Thank you! 

To the selfless leaders at organizations like Wings and A Safe Place who help people struggling under domestic violence; Thank you!  

To the victims of crime quietly frustrated; I see you and I will be your advocate!   

Over the next year, I can guarantee one thing: I will work harder and smarter than my opponent. With your continued support, we will win!

I wish you a Blessed Thanksgiving. Enjoy time with family and loved ones.

With Gratitude,

Mary Cole
