As Acting Mayor,
I would like to personally thank the Management Team for not only stepping up to the plate but continuing to provide the essential City services, and keeping those services to a level that exemplifies a standard that at times was hard to reach.
From the bottom of my heart and those of us on your City Council can not tell you how much we appreciate you all and always will. We will be there with support for you in the future.
In addition, I wish to thank staff for negotiating a conclusion to the strike and I wish all to know that staff has rightly earned my full faith and confidence as they have demonstrated leadership and professionalism in the highest degree.
I look forward to working with you on exciting endeavors for our community.
