A heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported me in my 2016 run for U.S. Senate with the Illinois Green Party. I am hopeful that the ideas and positions I advanced will help enrich and enliven the discourse.

My congratulations go to Ms. Duckworth, Senator Kirk, and Mr. McMillen for their spirited campaigns.

Once the election is over, I’ve decided to continue speaking out about the issues through my new personal website at www.ScottSummers.com.

Be sure to check in there for updates and my thoughts on public policy issues. You can also stay in touch by following me on Twitter and Facebook, or by subscribing to my new RSS feed.

In other words — let’s plan to keep talking!

Thanks again!

Sincerely,

Scott Summers
