Thank You Cedar Grove


Residents of Cedar Grove,

Although words cannot begin to describe how thankful I am to all of you for electing me to the Town Council, I wanted to write a letter to express my sincere gratitude.

I look back and reflect on the past 2+ months of campaigning and I am left with one overarching thought.  We are a great community filled with truly outstanding people.  I decided to run for town council because you all inspired me by your generosity, support, and love for our community. We knocked on over 1,500 doors and met so many different people, and I can tell you that this experience only further validated my decision to run for town council.  I am so thankful that you have given me the opportunity to lead our community together! I promise that I will work tirelessly to serve all of Cedar Grove and work together to advance our community.

Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank my family.  I want to thank my wife, Chelsea and my children, Aidan, Preston, and Jaxson.  Running for town council is a family effort and I would not have been able to do it without their love, support, understanding, and quite frankly, my wife’s unbelievable ability to juggle just about anything on her plate.  Thank you and I love you all so much!

I also want thank my fellow candidates Councilman Joe Cicala and Kerry Peterson.  You both were tireless workers and your passion and love for our community was evident every step of the way.

Thank you to those that supported and helped with my campaign.  This was a team effort and I thank you very much.

I am honored and humbled to be serving our great community.  Thank you for believing in me and trusting me.

Thank you,


Robbie Vargo
