Wednesday, November 7, 2018 I am a blessed man. A long and hard-fought campaign has come to an end. I have had the privilege of being part of a great team made up of decent, courageous, and selfless people. I have traveled to every corner of our great community and love it more than ever. I have met many great people and forged many new and close friendships. My family is healthy and intact. My faith is unshaken. We ran a clean campaign. We did our very best. I am proud of the results we achieved. I am at peace and enjoying God’s grace. To all of the many people who supported the campaign, I am deeply and forever grateful. Thank you for your many sacrifices, for your support, and for your prayers.
Roy L. McDonald II 2018 Candidate for District Court Judge District 22B, Davidson & Davie Counties, Seat 4
WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS
Is this the end of Roy McDonald for Judge? Time will tell. We always knew that running for the first time against a 16-year incumbent would be an uphill battle. But with over 47% of the total votes and more than 30,500 individual votes cast for Roy, it was obvious that many of you believed in him and change for our district. Many of you have encouraged another run. We can't say what the future will hold for certain. But do save those signs!
Right now, you can still find Roy at his law practice at Brinkley Walser Stoner in Lexington, where he will focus on his legal work. He will continue to serve our great nation in the Army JAG Corps, hopefully as a Lieutenant Colonel down the road. You can also look for Roy out in the community. He'll still be there supporting it, like he always has. Most importantly, he will be spending much more time with his family, who have missed him these past 18+ months.
One final thought from Roy's Campaign: if you've never been involved in a political campaign before we encourage you do to so! Candidates are always so grateful for all their volunteers, and Roy has had simply THE BEST VOLUNTEERS. What a wonderful experience to be part of the democratic process. If you aren't able to do that, at the very least, go out and VOTE, every single election. Every vote counts. Do your research, show up at the polls, and let you voice be heard.
