Dear Governor-Elect Haslam:

I congratulate you and wish you great success as the newly elected governor of the great state of Tennessee!!

For all the professional high quality and penetrating advertisements you ran in your election campaign, I personally have yet to see a thank you (perhaps I missed it!!) to the people of Tennessee who elected you. Perhaps you’re saving it for your inaugural address. May I suggest that a public thank you would appropriately complete the circle of trust and credibility that you so aptly portrayed in your election campaign.
