“I will faithfully serve and lead our beloved town as your mayor. It has been quite a journey to get to this point. But it has not been an easy one, to say the least. Many would say that I have no right to expect this coveted title. Indeed, I did not inherit this position because of prominence nor was I granted this position because of privileged status. But I have always believed that destiny cannot deny hard work and dedication,” Enad added.
