Below are the remarks of Fabian Bedne following the news that he had carried the 2011 Metro Council election for District 31.

Welcome everyone!!! WE MADE IT!!!!!!!!

WITH YOUR HELP WE HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL and we can now begin the hard work of bringing our neighbors and friends together to build a cohesive community - one that works together, plays together and builds for the future together.

I want to especially thank my opponent James Widrig for the manner in which he has conducted his campaign. He has run a clean campaign based on the issues and I really hope he will be willing to bring the energy he has displayed to help us build a strong community with the best possible quality of life.

So many people have helped in this campaign that began almost a year ago, I could not begin to thank everyone. However, there are some people I want to introduce that have worked side-by-side with me in this effort.
