I would not have been able to attend this historic convention and represent the Eleventh Congressional District of California without the support of the Democratic voters of our district, who chose to make a special trip on a sunny Sunday afternoon in April to vote for me, as well as the support of other fellow activists on the Obama campaign in the Bay Area.

To all of you I express my deep, heartfelt thanks for giving me the opportunity to represent you at this wonderful convention. There will never be another with its historic significance, and I will never forget you for sending me there for the experience of a lifetime.
