- CLOSE CONTEST: By June 15th, Hale trailed second-place candidate Mark Gilham by 26 votes. On June 17th, ten days after the 2022 Primary, the vote count showed that Hale had displaced Mark Gilham as the candidate with the second-highest vote count by 157 votes (0.17%) and would be moving on to the General Election.
- On July 22, 2022, Hale announced that she was ending her campaign Assembly for the 2022 election and withdrawing from the contest (although she would still appear on the ballot).
- QUOTABLE: "The responsibility to restore civility lies with each of us, not just our elected leaders. This year, challenge yourself to hear someone with opinions different than your own, open your mind or repair a rift. By doing this work, we build our personal and community resilience."
