State of the City

Good evening, everyone and welcome to the beautiful Muckleshoot Event Center. This is a space so grand and inviting that when our team asked me if we should return here for another year, my answer was a simple three letter word. YES! On behalf of the City of Auburn, it’s an honor to use and share this space alongside tribal members who have been so incredibly gracious. Which is why it’s important that we acknowledge the history and heritage of this land.

“The City of Auburn acknowledges that we are on the ancestral and contemporary lands of the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe. They have stewarded the land since time immemorial. The City of Auburn recognizes the generational harm done to the Muckleshoot people on the Salish lands through colonization, and commit to ensuring that our governmental partnerships recognize the continued vibrancy of their culture and honor their sovereignty.”

This acknowledgement signifies our great respect and admiration for the First Peoples that occupied this land before us and our unwavering desire to continue our collective paths together. I hope you will accept this in the spirit in which it is given. Thank you.

Before I begin, I’d like to take a moment to recognize some of our dignitaries and community leaders who have joined us tonight, and without whom our community just wouldn’t be the same.

Thank you, thank you, for being here tonight! And of course, my family - my heart and my soul. My very understanding husband of almost 26 years, Kemon, and our amazing and talented daughter Lucky, as well as my wonderful sister-in-law Chris. I’ve often said that being Mayor is my dream – to help lead & shape the city that I grew up in and that I love. It’s definitely not a 9-5 Monday through Friday job! I know I signed up for the long hours and difficult decisions, but what you might not realize is just how much my family has given up for me to realize this dream. Thank you for always understanding as I’m headed out the door at 7am telling you “I’ll be home after 9:00 tonight.” Or “Saturday I won’t be able to do – “fill in the blank”- because I have four community events to attend” One day a couple of years ago Kemon asked me what time I’d be home from work, and I said “at a normal time”. He laughed at me and said “there is no such thing as a normal time for you!” He’s not wrong!
I love you so very much for so very many reasons!

Many of you probably know that I LOVE quotes. I find something very comforting and inspiring about them, so I’m going to start tonight by sharing one with you.

Coretta Scott King once said “The greatness of a COMMUNITY is most accurately measured by the COMPASSIONATE actions of its members.”

Why did I chose that quote? Because as long as I can remember, three core pillars have been a part of my life, and that quote brings two of them together. My goal tonight is to bring all three of them together for you.  It hasn’t always been the exact same three words, but the meaning has always been the same. The words are printed on a sign on the bookcase just behind my desk. It’s there when I arrive in the morning, it’s there when I am in meetings throughout the day, and it’s there when I turn out the lights and leave at night. It reads: Compassion, Accountability, and Community. Three words. Thirteen syllables. Thirty-three letters. And a whole lot of meaning.

As our city continues to collectively emerge from beneath the overwhelming COVID-19 shadow, it was these three words I kept returning to. They were there when I expanded our anti-homelessness team to be its own department, increasing not only the overall budget and scope we allocate to services and directives, but the size of the team itself.

They were there when I approved a robust and substantial hiring effort at the Auburn Police Department, that included a position focused on Officer Wellness and diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI), positioning us as one of the most desirable and competitive law enforcement agencies in the state. The words were there when I amplified our DEI efforts internally and externally. And they were there when paint met concrete, when chairs fit just right, and when words met your gaze.

So, let’s talk about it.


But before we begin, I have a small request for you all. I know you’ve all got a smart phone around you somewhere, and I’m going to ask you to do what you’re typically not supposed to – pull it out and start using it! I promise this will all make sense in a bit. I want you to tell me – what does Compassion mean to you? Send as many thoughts as you like. And as I continue talking, go ahead and keep the comments coming.

And if you need help getting the poll to work, each of you have a small flyer at your seat with instructions on how to text in your answers, and a QR code to input via your mobile browser.

While you’re doing that, I want to share a recent experience with you. I had the good fortune of meeting the new reverend from White River Buddhist Temple – Reverend Cyndi, as well as visiting with members of the temple. They asked if I’d ever heard of a “Compassionate City” and that of course piqued my interest, so we chatted, and scheduled time to talk with John from Northwest Interfaith and Call of Compassion. Here’s the definition of a compassionate city that he provided – a quote from Karen Armstrong:

“A compassionate city is an uncomfortable city! A city that is uncomfortable when anyone is homeless or hungry. Uncomfortable if every child isn’t loved and given rich opportunities to grow and thrive. Uncomfortable when as a community we don’t treat our neighbors as we would wish to be treated.”

Every city needs to find its own path to compassion, and every path will be unique.

Last year, on this very stage, I got to share an update on our new DEI initiative called Inclusive Auburn. It’s led by our Chief Equity Officer, Brenda Goodson-Moore, and little more than a year later, we’re beginning to hit our stride, applying an equity lens to a multitude of internal and external projects. This definitely isn’t easy or quick work.

I think a good example of this work is our new Arts and Culture Center -- also known as our historic post office building on the corner of Auburn Avenue and First Street downtown. You may have seen an email a few weeks ago asking for your input on its official name.  I won’t spoil the upcoming announcement here, just know that it’s going to be wonderful, and I can’t wait for you to see the finished product when it opens later this year.

The new building was designed and programmed with compassion from the ground up to be as inclusive and open to as many of our residents as possible, both as an event space and a celebration of Auburn’s diverse community. Which is why our Parks department went through such great lengths to ensure full participation in the spirit of inclusion and belonging.

This crucial work is becoming embedded in our service delivery, and soon, all of our residents will be able to enjoy this space together.

Getting to this point wasn’t easy. One of Brenda’s first initiatives was turning the lens inward, working with Human Resources looking towards our hiring practices, new employee onboarding, and more. That onboarding process includes a tour of our White River Valley Museum, learning the difficult history of our region, which includes the forceful taking of land from our Native American community.

The work our DEI team is doing is important and it matters. But I don’t want you to just hear it from me.

I love the work our DEI team is accomplishing!

Our compassion doesn’t stop there. Show of hands, how many of you in the audience tonight have a teenager at home?  

As you know, as working parents, it can be incredibly difficult to find meaningful and positive after-school supervision and programming. And I think we can all agree that looking at Tik Tok for 4 hours doesn’t count.

That’s why our Parks department runs the Teen Center – The REC - out of the Community & Events Center. Every weekday from about the time school gets out to 5 or 6 p.m., teens from across Auburn are welcomed into our space. And what do they do there? Just about everything. They can play basketball, go outside, play video games, eat snacks, or just hangout. Often, though, they’re learning a new skill. Like cooking.

Take a look.

Thank you, Keisha

Earlier this year, we released a podcast episode where we interviewed two artists who’ve made monumental beautification efforts around Auburn. One was Jill DRILLAVITCH, who alongside Craig BRIGHT-BACH, made a sculpture called Breathe Deep: Raven Moon. The sculpture is near the Auburn Justice Center and what makes it particularly "cool” is that it’s made of reclaimed nuclear cooling fan blades. We also spoke to Peter RYE-QWAHMM, a man responsible for perhaps the most famous landmark in the land. If you didn’t know, he made our favorite fast-food lover.

None of these beautification efforts are an accident. Our Parks team works diligently with local artists to install and rotate sculptures and art all around town.

I’ll let Allison Hyde take it from here.

And of course, what’s Auburn without our special events? Our Parks department is hard at work each year planning and organizing several large-scale events, like the Auburn Farmer’s Market, Petpalooza, Kids Day, 4th of July Festival, the Santa Parade and Tree Lighting, Hops and Crops, and of course, the Veterans Day Parade, to name just a few.

It truly takes a village to make even one of these a success. How they manage dozens a year is beyond me. Take a look.

Thank you to our dedicated team that make our special events, as Kristy said “special”!

Alright, I think you’ve all texted your words for Compassion, so let’s take a look.


And now, it’s time to provide your ideas on what Accountability means to you. Same as last time, let’s pull those smart phones out and get to texting.

And while you’re doing that, let’s talk about homelessness.

Just two weeks ago, I was part of an expanded entourage of agencies and people  -- Including U.S. Representative Adam Smith and his staff, King County Councilmember Dave Upthegrove and staff, Kent Hay, Officers Williams & Mast from the City of Auburn, Kent Mayor Dana Ralph and her staff,  representatives of King County Regional Homelessness Authority, two King County Sheriffs, and two representatives of the REACH program – that visited a large homeless encampment on King County property between Kent and Auburn.

The officers and service providers who’ve been there dozens of times before to offer services and housing spoke openly and passionately about a man named Billy. They showed us photographs, which I won’t share because it wouldn’t be appropriate and it would break your heart. Billy was laying on his back, on an emergency stretcher, with no pants on. He was emaciated. His legs were in horrible shape, with huge infected open sores. Had service providers not found Billy, he would have died. Just a few yards away from Green River Road and a popular youth soccer field. Mere feet from his campmates.

How on Earth can we allow this to continue? How can we let people like Billy die outside, unknown and unaccounted? If he did, would anyone other than those in the camp ever learn of his fate? Would anyone even care? That thought keeps me awake at night. And it’s why in Auburn, that’s not how we operate. We don’t allow people like that to suffer in the elements, in the wet and in the cold. Not on my watch.

Because despite what you might see or hear, we are making a difference. Real, actionable, defensible, humane differences every single day. Our Anti-homelessness team, led by Kent Hay, is out there day in and day out offering housing and services to those experiencing homeless across the City of Auburn. Kent is persistent and determined and doesn’t give up easily. But, if after numerous attempts they don’t want to accept those services, our stance is simple: Maybe Auburn just isn’t the place for you. We of course want you to be here and be part of our community, but a community does not work without accountability.

Homelessness is not unique to our city. It’s not unique to our state and it’s not unique to our country. I see and hear your comments about the problems you’re experiencing in your neighborhoods. Believe me, I do know. I’ve lived here since 1968, and I’ve seen and experienced many of the same things you have. The solutions are not quick, and they are not easy because as you’ve realized, just like all of us, each person is different.

Homelessness is not a monolith; every situation differs, and that means the solutions to some degree, do too. But, to date since Kent came on board in April of 2020, we’ve successfully housed over 100 people in Auburn, and we’re making more strides every-single-day. We’ve led clean ups of encampments on city property in Game Farm Park, along the Green River, and worked with property owners across the city to remove thousands of pounds of trash and get people connected with housing and addiction services.

Just a few weeks ago, near that same area on Green River Road, King County Sheriff’s Deputies hauled out over 120,000 pounds of trash – that's 60 tons - from encampments along King County property. There are solutions in the works but just like you: I wish they were faster. It will never be fast enough.

The positive news for Auburn is that we’re in good hands. We have a team dedicated to solving the problem of homelessness. And it’s expanding because the work we’re doing is working.

Kent and Debbie aren’t alone here. Our Police Department’s Community Response Team (CRT) is right there with them, consisting of three full-time officers who work daily to build relationships with community members, business owners and people experiencing homelessness. Their names are Stephanie Bennett, Chris Mast, and Aaron Williams.

As the amount of people experiencing homelessness has grown significantly over the past few years, CRT has been working closely with other city departments to determine ways to provide resources to assist our community members who are currently unhoused.

Every Tuesday, CRT works with the Salvation Army Street Level Team. The Street Level Team consists of two Outreach Community Engagement Specialists who provide personal supplies and resources to people who are living in vehicles. The Street Level Team assists people by finding appropriate and affordable local housing options. They provide much needed assistance and advice throughout this process. Last year, the Salvation Army housed over 100 people within the city limits through their weekly outreach with CRT.

The Auburn Police Department bike unit, Special Investigations Unit and CRT, along with the city’s Anti-Homelessness Outreach Team have also been participating in a “downtown emphasis” since August of last year. Each morning and early evening, officers have been making contacts with individuals experiencing homelessness in the downtown area. People like Arick Karl, who earlier this year made the difficult transition into clean and sober housing. He doesn’t ever want to spend another night sleeping outside.

The goal of this emphasis is to reach a large number of individuals in a small area while also providing the feeling of safety to business owners, their customers and residents in the downtown area. When appropriate, enforcement actions are taken, more often however, resources are provided to individuals whom they encounter. This emphasis became so successful that the program was extended, and the scope of the area expanded to include areas in North Auburn as well as the downtown corridor. We’re currently expanding south towards Howard Road, too.

CRT’s goals for 2023 include continuing to conduct outreach with the Salvation Army weekly and continuing to work with the anti-homelessness team in order to come up with new and inventive ways to help those experiencing homelessness in obtaining housing, mental health services, addiction treatment and/or other needed services.

All of these efforts coalesce at the Auburn Community Resource Center along Auburn Way North. It houses a multitude of resources, including the We Care Daily Clinics, Orion Industries, the King County Library System, Seattle-King County Public Health, The Sundown Overnight Shelter and the Ray of Hope Day Center, just to name a few.

It’s also home to Auburn’s Community Court, which began in 2021 as an alternative, problem-solving court for some non-violent misdemeanor cases. Our goal has always been to create meaningful options other than just jail time for persons needing resources. And while it’s not for everyone, we’ve seen amazing results.

I’ll let the team tell you more about it.

Thank you, Judge Taguba, Sergio and others for your dedication to our Community Court.

Part of the programming that community court participants are required to complete is community service, which includes working with our Maintenance and Operations Community Service facilitators. They meet at the Ray of Hope every Tuesday and Thursday and take participants along to fulfill a four- or eight-hour shift. The average crew size is between two to six participants. And what do they do? They pick up garbage and remove graffiti within public right of way. So far this year they have removed two tons of refuse and painted over graffiti for more than 50 hours.

And finally, how could we talk about accountability without mentioning the Auburn Police Department’s community-focused priorities. I want you to go on a journey with me down memory lane, to the summer of 2020, when this happened.

This moment was a perfect storm. What began as an awful, indefensible, brutal and senseless act turned into a necessary nationwide movement. And part of that movement was examining our police departments and what steps we can take to do better for our community. And most especially, for our residents, who have the right to be treated with dignity, respect and empathy.

In Auburn, that looked like this – the formation of the Police Advisory Committee (PAC), which in partnership with the police department, develops policies and strategies for the implementation of stronger, effective and equitable community policing.

The PAC is composed of over 25 members from all walks of life. We have representation from the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, Eastern European residents, Business community, the Black community, Faith-based organizations, LGBTQIA+ community, each of the six patrol districts and many more.

We have two of our members Pastor LaShund Lambert and Kacie Bray from the Auburn Area Connect Chamber of Commerce ready to tell you more.

A huge thank you to our PAC for their dedication to both our officers and community members.

OK, so let’s take a look at the results from your thoughts on Accountability.


Last one – and this is a big one. What does Community mean to each of you? You know you’re going to hear what it means to me, but I want to know what you think.

One of the first things our city’s new communication’s manager told me after moving here in September from Spokane was that Auburn, despite its size and population, feels remarkably like a small town. He’s right, we’ve had that sense and feel for a long time, and it’s something we are proud of. When Lucky was growing up, I’d more often than not have her join me in community service projects and events because I wanted her to know the privilege of giving back to a community that has given us so much.

And why is that? Because at the end of the day, community is the cornerstone of our city, and it’s something we’ve fought hard to hang onto, even as our population edges ever closer to 100,000. Surprising, I know. Just a few years ago, we predicted we’d hit that mark sometime in the 2030s. If trends hold, we’ll hit it sometime before 2030.

In Auburn, we are proud of the diversity of our residents and the many different perspectives and ideas that make Auburn such a vibrant and dynamic place to live. We are committed to fostering a sense of belonging and inclusivity, where everyone feels welcome, valued and respected.

What does that look like in real life? How about our housing repair program, a grant that provides eligible homeowners up to $9,999 for emergency home repairs and serves as one of the city’s largest homeless prevention programs by enabling and ensuring homeowners can remain in safe, comfortable housing when they don’t have the means or resources to make repairs themselves.

The funds can be used for anything from unsafe stairs, floor repair, plumbing, weatherization and heating, or leaky roofs, just to name a few. Last year, we assisted over 60 households serving over 90 residents.

Speaking of water, when was the last time you really stopped to think about what goes into ensuring our drinking water is safe and pure? I don’t know if you’ve visited other parts of the country and tasted their tap water, but I have to say, ours is some of the best in the country. And yes, I’m aware most mayors of most cities would say that. But I can prove ours is special!

I’m gonna get a little “geeky” on you for a few minutes, so hold on! The city of Auburn is required by the Department of Health to take weekly samples from dedicated locations around the city to test for potential contamination. These samples check to see if coliforms are present in the water system. Coliform bacteria are organisms that are present in the environment. Coliform bacteria will not likely cause illness. However, their presence in drinking water indicates that disease-causing organisms – or pathogens -- could be in the water system.

To minimize the chance of allowing coliform bacteria to survive in our water system, the city treats the water with a small amount of chlorine which is very effective at killing these bacteria. The city is required to take 70 of these samples every month. We have not had a coliform-positive sample in many years.

The city also has 2 corrosion control facilities, Fulmer Field and Howard Road. These facilities are used to treat both ground water and spring water, and although the water is very pure and requires no filtration, the water’s Ph level is naturally corrosive. So, at these locations the water is ran through towers allowing the carbon dioxide molecules to be released from the water making the water more neutral and eliminating the corrosive nature of the water.

When water is low in Ph it can cause corrosion in home fixtures and piping, potentially causing the leaching of copper and lead from brass fittings within our homes. To verify that the city’s Ph treatment is working correctly, we are required by the WA DOH to do Lead and Copper testing every 3 years. Our results all come back within the required range of acceptability showing that our treatment is optimal.

For the water not yet in the city’s system – we call that storm water typically – you might not know it’s a leading pollution threat to natural waters like lakes, streams, and rivers. To help combat the concerns of pollution and contamination to natural waters, the City is required to implement a Stormwater Management Action Plan – affectionately known as the “SMAP” process, with the goal of improving quantity and quality in a specific body of water by prioritizing certain actions on the land that drains to it.

With the help of a consultant, we’ve selected the Olson Creek basin, in the Lea Hill area, as the body of water to prioritize these actions. The City’s final SMAP report was submitted to Ecology at the end of March 2023 and concluded a year-long process of, assessment, prioritization and planning collaboration.
I told you I was going to get “geeky”, and I hope I didn’t disappoint!

So, now, how about our streets? Last year, following an in-depth review of our existing resources for preservation of roadways, we found that our local street program could use increased funding to ensure maintenance and improvements for obtaining an average Pavement Condition Index - or PCI - of 70. And what is that? Each street is rated on a scale of 0 to 100, with 100 being new pavement, and 0 being a completely failed roadway, or let’s just call it gravel.

At the end of last year, local streets have exceeded an average of 70 but have reduced from our 2021 average level, and our arterials and collector network are well below the average target at 60.

Funding for this project was made possible through a City Council implemented sales tax of 0.01% under the authority of the Transportation Benefit District. The City Council also increases the City Utility tax by 1.5%. These revenues, alongside aggressive pursuits of grant funds, were then dedicated solely to fund transportation improvements.

Alrighty, that was a lot of numbers. What’s that all mean?

It means we can complete projects like this one on 4th Street Southeast from Auburn Way South to L Street Southeast.

And in the coming years, we have many preservation projects planned, but to highlight a few, we have the Lake Tapps Parkway, R Street Southeast from 22nd to the White River, and M Street Northeast, from Main to 4th Street Northeast.

OK, we’ve given some attention to water and streets, so, let’s switch to our Civics Academy. I am so proud of this program! It’s a weeks-long course where Auburn residents can learn more about how their city operates, how decisions are made, and how funds are allocated. 2022 marked the first year we had an in-person model of our Civics Academy since 2019. We had 14 total sessions last year, so community members had over 30 hours of connection time with City Staff.

It also included new facets of the programming, because in 2022 participants were also able to: take a tour of the Auburn Municipal Airport, tour the Community Center and the White River Valley Museum with the Parks, Arts and Recreation crew, and engage with elected officials during two separate sessions. Since the program began, we have taken 98 graduates through the course and we’re excited for the 2023 season, which opens in July. I hope I’ve generated some interest amongst you and that you’ll consider participating!

Have any of you have been to City Hall recently? You might have seen a line at our Clerk’s Office. More often than not, that’s because someone is there to get their passport, a service we’ve been providing for many years, but really without the fanfare it deserves. Just last year, we helped issue over 1,000 passports to our residents. Now that the world has re-opened for travel, it has become an invaluable local service.

Another service I’m excited to talk about is our graffiti abatement program. In other words, murals. I hope you’ve seen those around; I love them. In 2022, we began a program called Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), which is the technical name. Really, it’s installation of more public art. And it serves two functions – one, the beautification of our city; and two, it’s a graffiti deterrent.

So far, at 25 intersections, traffic signal cabinet and battery backup boxes have been treated with wraps of multiple arts designs. There’s also a gorgeous new mural under the Charles A. Booth bridge near the intersection of A Street SW and 2nd Street SW, painted using CPTED philosophies. The bridge used to be vandalized on a regular basis, generally weekly. Now, it’s a work of art.

Last year, we reclassified our code compliance positions to allow more entry-level code compliance officers to be hired. Code Enforcement is a difficult field to get into without experience, and this new classification focuses on world experience, as well as technical expertise that might normally be overlooked. Not in Auburn, we’re all about being creative in a way that makes good business and community sense.

And back to murals for a moment, I hope you’ve had a chance to see the new artwork at our municipal airport. Tim Mensonides, our airport’s manager, hopes to have one on each hangar wall - greeting and farewelling airport patrons and passengers.

Why don’t you take a moment and listen to him.

Thank you, Tim & Angela

That brings us to the final topic in our community pillar, and that’s of course, communication. How we talk with and listen to you.

I spoke briefly about our new Communications Manager Jonathan Glover, earlier. Since coming to the city in September, he’s uhh…well... He’s changed some things. Maybe you’ve noticed?

Our goal with our social media platforms has always been simple: make it engaging. Give you a reason to follow along. Sometimes it’s to be in on the joke. And sometimes it’s to learn a vital piece of information – especially during an emergency.

That same philosophy permeates across our communications platforms. We have our magazine, that I hope you love as much as I do, and one of our goals was to inject more storytelling alongside the information you need to know about. It’s always good to learn about upcoming projects and events, but how can we do that alongside stories of real people experiencing real hardships? Or people who want to share something cool they’ve done or an accomplishment they’re proud of. What makes Auburn, Auburn?

Earlier I mentioned our podcast, and we’re still going strong! Season 2 will be rolling out soon, and there’s going to be a few changes. You may have already noticed a small change in our previous episode, when I had a co-host joined me to add another perspective. We’ll try to change it up from time to time to keep it lively and relevant! If you have topics you’d like us to cover, please let me know!

This year we also started a City of Auburn blog, an avenue to produce and share more long-form content more often, not just 4 times a year like the magazine.

And of course – our email campaigns, like our Weekly Updates, park updates, and more.

All of this is to say, none of this is a monologue. We LOVE hearing from you – yes, even when you argue back and forth for hours in our mentions on Facebook. It’s really just as easy as sending us a tweet, firing off an email, or picking up a phone.

Here we are with the results of our last word cloud – and thank you for working along with us this evening. I appreciate the engagement.

Compassion, Accountability and Community

By the way, in case you were wondering, that sound you’ve been hearing all night, of a symphony tuning? I think it sounds lovely, but any guesses what it is? It’s Tuning to “A”. “A” For Auburn.

If there’s anything I want you to take away from tonight, it’s that no single pillar we’ve talked about can hold up a city on its own. Compassion needs accountability. Just as accountability needs compassion. Community needs both. And a city, well, it needs all three.

I want you to watch this video – it's from last year, but we played it as people were leaving, and I just don’t think it got the viewing and appreciation that it deserved. So, for a repeat performance, please enjoy!

As I look around this room, I see these themes embodied in the organizations and people among us. It’s why I know the best is yet to come and that the city – this beautiful city – bumps, bruises and all- is in good hands.

And as I look ahead to the future, I know that there will be more challenges and obstacles to overcome. I’d be a fool not to recognize that. My job is to be mindful of not just the fiscal bottom line, but the social bottom line as well. I’m confident that with young people like our Junior City Council, and by staying true to our values of COMPASSION, ACCOUNTABILITY and COMMUNITY, we can continue to make Auburn a place that we are all proud to call home for years and years to come.

I know I am.

Before we end, I want to thank the amazing team that put this all together.

Thank you to the team here at the Muckleshoot Events Center, and Team Auburn: Jonathan Glover, Kevin McCoy, Tamie Bothell, Chester Boyd, Melissa Bailey, Holly Ferry, Jason Jones, Dana Hinman, Bridget Dohse, and our “talent” - everyone who took the time to be in our videos. It truly is a great team, and one I’m proud to work with and for!

Our time together this evening means more to me than you might realize. Stay around for a while and socialize, and when you do leave, please drive safely. I hope you join us next year, but I also hope that I see y’all before that. Thank you, and good night!
