On Dec. 29, during my swearing in ceremony for Probate judge of Rockdale County, I acknowledged several people who supported me and played a valuable role in my campaign. However, due to several distractions, I inadvertently failed to acknowledge Ms. Gerre Byrd. Ms. Byrd put forth a gallant effort by investing a great deal of time and physical labor to ensure that my campaign was a success. Therefore, while I cannot recreate the event where I failed to acknowledge her, I want to take this opportunity to let everyone know that Ms. Byrd was a valuable member of my campaign team, and my failure to mention her was not intentional.
